During the month of June, the so-called Pride Month is celebrated all over the world, that is the time of year dedicated in particular to the pride of the people LGBTQIA + .
This is a series of initiatives designed primarily to defend the rights of homosexuals, thus recalling the first Gay Pride held in June 1970 in New York City.
The month of gay pride obviously also touched the world of video games, thanks to a series of tributes and special initiatives by some major international software houses and publishers.
Only today, in fact, Microsoft has made an exclusive Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S available for free for all, precisely by virtue of the month dedicated to gender equality.
Also Naughty Dog has now decided to pay homage to Pride Month with a truly surprising image, which groups together in a unique, beautiful artwork some of the LGBTQIA + characters belonging to the franchise by The Last of Us .
Below, the original tweet with the message from the US development team.
Whether in the physical world around us or the digital worlds that reflect reality, LGBTQIA + individuals universally deserve intersectional representation, equal rights, and inclusion. Happy #PRIDE to all. Here’s to celebrating who you are and honoring those who paved the way. pic.twitter.com/t4pboXmReH

Whether it’s the real world around us or the digital worlds that reflect reality, LGBTQIA + people deserve intersectional representation, equal rights and inclusion. Happy gay pride month to everyone. To celebrate who you are and honor those who have allowed this.
For total inclusion, in the name of gender equality, Naughty Dog has therefore decided to release this new image showing Ellie , Dina , Riley , Bill and Lev , characters seen both in the first chapter and in The Last of Us Part II .
Have you already read in any case that a user on Reddit discovered that in the original episode of the series Ellie would have predicted a dramatic event seen in Part II ?
And that a theory would also justify Joel’s “betrayal”, well known to those who completed both chapters?
Finally, we would like to point out that the recent PS5 performance upgrade of the second episode would have also brought some rather conspicuous graphic defects.
If you want to catch up on the beautiful second installment of the series that originally came out on PS4 last year, you can buy The Last of Us Part II now for a very low price.
