Heck JKR! A Harry Potter gaming marathon supporting The Trevor Project
- This is an info page for my upcoming charity stream marathon, streamed live on twitch may 12-15 2022
- We are living in an unprecedented time for trans people. Violence, anti-trans laws, and fearmongering anti-trans rhetoric is thriving in the cultural consciousness. As things plummet back into the dark ages of gay rights, as women and afab trans people have their right to choose openly threatened and loophole'd, the suicide rate for trans people has skyrocketed in just a few short months. We're all exhausted, scared, and several people I personally know are on the brink.
- Mrs. Joanne Rowling has had no small part in helping to mainstream this awful rhetoric, and this breaks my heart. I grew up with the Harry Potter series. Books, games, films. They are an inextricable part of this trans person's trans childhood. They are not without flaws, but they are still dear to me, despite the author's continued negligence and abuse of the trans community at large.
- I don't think we could possibly reclaim harry potter, but I do want to revisit some of that childhood magic, and stick it to Joanne in the process.
- With that in mind, I am doing a charity event supporting the Trevor Project on may 12-15 revisiting 11+ harry potter games across 5 systems and across 3 years of the series' plot. The Trevor Project is the premiere pro-lgbtqia+ suicide prevention org, offering resources, counseling, and more to keep us safe through young adulthood. The Trevor Project have come under fire recently for daring to support trans kids, and I'm here to stand up for them in my own weird way.
- Protect queer lives. Protect their magic.
- I am not committing to specific times as my health is not great, but you can expect streams to start in the early-mid afternoon EST and generally not run too long past midnight EST. Follow the channel at twitch.tv/gayandplay or join the !discord to get notified
- May 12th: PSX games, attempting to finish Sorcerer's Stone and play a good chunk of Chamber of Secrets
- May 13th: PC games, attempting to finish Chamber of Secrets, my childhood fav, but since they're short, I'm probably going to complete at least two
- May 14th: 6th gen (PS2/GC) games, attempting to finish POA, but would love to do more.
- May 14th: BONUS: Episode 0 of Gravitional Lensing recording session, a new podcast from me and good friend twitch.tv/crag
- May 15th: longer chill stream with the GBA and GBC RPGs, attempting to finish Sorcerer's Stone as I've never played it before!
- DISCLAIMER: Our friend Joanne has received no kickback to make this stream happen. All of these games I either already owned myself from childhood or are explicit abandonware carefully maintained by a community of passionate nostalgia freaks and speedrunners. My heart goes out to them. None of this would've been possible without their hard work.
- Stay strong everyone, and remember, love wins.
- HECK JKR. TRANS RIGHTS ARE HUMAN RIGHTS. BLACK TRANS LIVES MATTER. TRANS LIBERATION NOW.
