About PinkFae Gaming
PinkFae started in the winter of 2014 as a video game blog. The name of the blog was taken from Katie’s name she uses when creating characters in various video games. The intent was to post video game reviews, gaming experiences and fan fiction based on Katie’s character PinkFae.
The direction of the site expanded after Katie read about the experiences of other transgender gamers, discovering transgender game developers and the discrimination of transgender female gamers in female professional gaming tournaments. Its current mission is to provide gaming news of interest to transgender gamers, interviews of transgender game developers, and weekly reviews of games. We also host video game tournaments that are transgender inclusive.
Besides video games, the site also covers board games, dedicated deck card games and roll playing games. We hope you find a lot of information here and check back often. If you have something you’d like to see covered on the site, feel free to drop us a line via the contact page.
Katie Walter – Editor-in-Chief, Founder
Katie’s (she/her) first experience with video games was in the late 1970s with Pong on the family Tandy TRS-80 home computer. She published her first gaming review in 1982 for the TRS-80 video game Rear Guard. It was around this time that Katie also discovered the joy of roll playing games, starting with Advanced Dungeons & Dragons. In college she played Doom, getting her into first person shooting games. This interest lasted until Final Fantasy XI was released when she started to spend time playing massively multiplayer online role-playing games. Currently she has an interest in many different genres of video games. She lives in Elgin, Illinois with her cat Lorien.
