Pride At Play Is A Free Games Exhibition Coming To Melbourne Next Month

Pride At Play, a curated exhibition of independent queer games and game design from across Oceania and the Pacific, is coming to Melbourne in June.

Pride At Play will run from June 3rd to June 24th at Carlisle St Arts Space at the St Kilda Town Hall. The gallery will be open from 9 am to 4 pm on weekdays and will only be open on Saturday when it crosses over with the welcome event. Admission is free, and tickets can be found right over here! The best part of the exhibition is that the entire exhibition catalogue is up for sale, and all proceeds are donated to charity.
