Zynga celebrates Pride Month 2023 with special events across its several titles

Celebrate Pride Month with amazing events!

Zynga Inc, a fully-owned publishing division of Take-Two Interactive, announced today a partnership with the It Gets Better Project, an organization that connects LGBTQ+ adolescents throughout the world, in observance of Pride Month 2023. A $50,000 total contribution from Take-Two and zPride, a Zynga employee resource group, will also be made as part of the partnership.

Zynga released its first-ever Pride Month website, incorporating cooperative activities with the It Gets Better Project, in-game events, and employee spotlights, for this year’s Play With Pride campaign. On Zynga’s blog and in these Twitch and YouTube videos, you can hear the inspiring tales of how six LGBTQ+ employees are fostering an inclusive and accepting atmosphere in gaming and beyond.

“Inclusivity doesn’t just happen; it has to be intentional, which is why the annual Play With Pride initiative is so important to us. It serves as both a love letter to the LGBTQ+ community and a celebration of the identities of the game developers who create our games.” said Lad Geake, zPride Co-Lead.

It Gets Better Project Strategic Partnerships Manager Morgan Cohn said, “We are really happy to work with a partner like Zynga to increase our support for young people in the LGBTQ+ community through gaming. Zynga has done a great job of promoting inclusivity in gaming, and this collaboration shows how the LGBTQ+ community can have a good, long-lasting impact on the sector by bringing various experiences to it.”
