The Tearoom: the gay cruising 

The TearoomThe game is a foot, but that is probably in some peoples dream.  The Tearoom being referred to here is that of the men’s toilet, where before the law was changed, and indeed even afterwards, men who wanted ‘gay sex’ use to frequent and attempt to have sex or do a pick up without the police catching them.

Often the police use to have sting operations using ‘molly boys’ or ‘honey traps’ where they used young men (sometimes underage or new policemen) to frequent these areas, lead the man on, and then arrest him.

This practice is still being used today by ISIS, as can be seen the article ‘Islamic State’s secret flirting squads expose gay men for trial and execution’ published by the Daily Star Sunday, In may 2015

To add to this, Sean McGouran brought to my attention that there was a ballet / dance about such things Joseph Mercier’s Cruising, Clubbing Fucking: An Elegy – he mentioned that he had performed in Belfast a number of times (at the OutBurst festival).

He and dancer Sebastian Langueneur ended up in their birthday suits…

Games Anyone?

This game features gay sex, trans people, BDSM and is already a bestseller

Dragon Age Inquisition could be the most inclusive role-playing game ever

In Dragon Age: Inquisition, you can have gay sex, meet trans characters and indulge in a little kink.

Bioware’s Dragon Age: Inquisition includes gay sex, trans characters and a realistic BDSM relationship and is already a bestseller.

This role-playing game has been flying off the shelves since it was released on 18 November, with players delving into the dark, fantasy world where they can choose their own path.

During gameplay, your Inquisitor can meet Iron Bull, a pansexual horned mercenary.

As a male or female character, you can have sex with him. If you choose to be a male, you get to see one of the sweetest depictions of gay love in gaming ever made.

If you choose to carry on the relationship, you can agree to add a little more kink if you wish. For those uninitiated into the world of BDSM, Iron Bull explains concepts such as a safe word and sub space to the main character.

If horns aren’t your thing, you can also meet Dorian, a gay renegade mage that only romances male characters.

And if guys aren’t you thing at all, meet up with Sera, an impulsive fighter, that is only interested in women.

And then if it wasn’t inclusive enough, legendary cisgender actress Jennifer Hale stars as Klem. Klem is transgender, one of the best soldiers in the game. If players need an explanation in how you should treat trans people, they’ve got one.

Gaming is often seen as reluctant to inclusivity, but Bioware may have just moved the industry forward – finally – into 2014.
