Nintendo, publisher of upcoming game Tomodachi Life, released a new statement today promising to make any future games in the series inclusive of same-sex relationships. "We will strive to design a game-play experience from the ground up that is more inclusive, and better represents all players," they said.
In the next few weeks Lifetime's GLAAD Media Award-winning series Drop Dead Diva, will air its final episode. The Advocate interviewed showrunner Josh Berman and took a look back at some of the LGBT-inclusive episodes.
Cecilia Aldarondo, the filmmaker behind Memories of a Penitent Heart, will be giving work-in-progress talks about the film at several congregations around New York City. The film tackles themes of family acceptance, HIV/AIDS, Latino family culture, and Roman Catholic teaching on being gay.
Following outcry from fans that upcoming game Tomodachi Life would allow opposite-sex characters to date and marry one another, but not same-sex characters, publisher Nintendo released a statement saying they were “not trying to provide social commentary.” Unfortunately by continuing to limit the options available to players, Nintendo is doing just that.
