I think we need another LGBTQIA+ pride event in OSRS to let such players know that despite Wolf, the JGod behind the gay pride event, being gone, they shall still be accepted within our community. Discuss. If slayer is a skill, then I guess these slayer drop tables catered to skillers by pumping out so many resources. :)

This is about accepting our playerbase, not "my" politics.

This isn't politics, there's no voting involved. Jagex has hosted these events before and should continue to do so. I'm sorry if you have an issue with LGBTQIA+, but then perhaps an LGBTQIA+ event is exactly what you need :).

This. It'd also be entirely optional.

I think this would be a great decision, as a company with influence over a group of society - leading the way with positive messaging is important.

Lots of Jagex mods are so openly supportive of diversity which makes sense since Jagex are an equal opportunities employer and positively encourages applications from suitably qualified and eligible candidates regardless of sex, race, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy or maternity, religion or belief.

BUT... this doesn't stop the homophobia that's present in the game. I'm in an LGBT clan chat and it's regularly invaded by hateful people. Maybe an event would raise some awareness.

I'm a straight male and I see the strong need for something like this. Any homophobia can be taken care of with a permanent mute. Sometimes, we need to punish players harshly for the greater good.

Politics were around since the first gay pride event!

I think we should stop calling it homophobia because it has little to do with fear and more with being a knob.
