LGBT Guild Holds Pride Parade in Final Fantasy XIV


It’s always nice to see people coming together within the gaming community to do something life-affirming. Check out this video, in which the Rough Trade Gaming Community (the largest LGBT guild in the world) holds its very own Pride Parade within the world of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. According to the guild, this parade was held in honor of producer Naoki Yoshida, who made it so there are no limitations on marriage within the game. It was also held to honor fallen friends and allies, and to combat hate speech online.
