The PS4 GayStation Edition goes up for auction to support asylum seekers, LGBTQ migrants

Just in time for Pride Week in Sweden, retailer Webhallen is putting a special “GayStation Edition” of the PS4 up for auction.

The event is in support of the Swedish Federation for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Rights, with all proceeds in support of asylum seekers, undocumented migrants and new LGBTQ arrivals to the country.

“For many young people, the world of games will become a refuge to escape the taunting or worse of real life. On Webhallen, we are gamers in heart and mind, and are keen that as many as possible have the opportunity to feel welcome and enjoy the world’s largest and fastest growing interest: video games,” Webhallen said of the initiative.

What do you think of the GayStation? Personally, it’s a little too gay for this homosexual writer’s tastes.

You can head here to bid on the console. It’s currently at 18600 kr ($ 2,890 AUD) at the time of writing.

Thanks, ReptileScorpio!
