EA to host LGBT 'Full Spectrum' event

Company campaigns against homophobia

EA will host an event aimed at addressing gay, lesbian, bisexual and transexual issues in videogames.


Set to take place in New York on Wednesday, the event "will bring together leaders from the LGBT and videogame community to talk about the state of hate in videogames, the origins of homophobia in games, the development of authentic LGBT characters and whether our industry is doing enough to combat hate."

The event will consist of panels and speeches from the likes of BioWare Austin GM Matt Bromberg, CNN's Hilary Rosen, and 2013 Super Bowl Champion Brendon Ayanbadejo.

Full details for the event can be found of the EA website.
