Guild Wars 2 players organize Pride March Tyria 2017 for June 24
Player advocates are organizing a pride march in Guild Wars 2 set for June 24th and 25th. The game is well-known in the MMORPG community for its LGBTQ inclusiveness.
“We welcome all open-minded Tyrians and advocates of equal rights to attend Pride March Tyria 2017,” event organizers posted on Reddit and the official forums this week. “We especially invite those gender identity and sexual orientation minorities to gather for support and solidarity. The march will begin June 24 half an hour past daily achievement reset time at Tangle Root Outpost where we will march to Field of the Fallen in Lion’s Arch. There we shall spend a day in mourning and remembrance of those in our community who cannot join us in person. The march will pick up again June 25 at the same time and head to its end point at The Hawke Heart.”
The event will take place on the same date and locations for both NA and EU servers. The EU contact has also posted that the branch will again fundraise for a LGBTQ+ charity, with in-game prizes for donors.
