9 Queer Video Game Streamers You Should Watch This Fall

As the weather turns colder and you’d rather stay indoors, you might be looking for more things to keep in the background or wear while indulging in your fall-flavored vices. Personally, there’s nothing I enjoy doing more than pouring myself tea and snuggling up against my computer monitor watching strangers play video games online.

During the frantic start of quarantine, I was somewhat reassured by the sounds of streamers talking and the video games they were playing as I went about my daily chores. I searched for a game I liked, clicked around a bit, and finally found a streamer that had a community I felt comfortable with. Which mostly was a streamer who was openly queer or who had taken measures to ensure their stream was a safe space.

For those interested in watching people play video games but not sure where or who to start with – check out this list of amazing queer streamers/content creators.
