Participate in the New Gaymer Survey

Like videogames? Love sexual identity? Then you'll simply adore the "New Gaymer Survey," a study by Paul Nowak who aims to continue the work of the original "Gay Gamer" survey launched several years ago. The original, academically approved study charted the presence of gay and bi gamers within the community, and the new one hopes to do the same.

Nowak's study explores "sexual identity and gender orientation" and the results could be quite interesting, so we're encouraging everybody, gay or straight, to participate. All you need to do is go here and answer some questions about your gaming habits and opinions on homosexuality in videogames. Easy stuff, really. Orson Scott Card would love it.

Head on over, take the survey, and feel free to share your views on homosexuality and how it's represented in gaming. We've often had great debates on the subject.
