I have been trying to get some fund raising for the non-profit for a while now. With me being out of work and on disability, I just can’t maintain this organization on my own as I have been doing. I come to depend on our writers on this site to keep up with the content while I’m trying to build the organization up and get more name recognition. This isn’t a very easy task, and takes up the majority of my time. I am currently juggling between getting us to have a presence on Twitch with our new channel there, along with trying to vocalize why people should be investing their time and money into the mission of PinkFae Gaming.
We have completed the graphics and laid out the channel for our new PinkFae TV channel on Twitch. Now all we need are some streamers to showcase. It is our hope to find some transgender and ally streamers that would be willing to stream on our new channel. This way viewers could see some of the great content that transgender gamers have to offer for the Twitch community.
Early last week we finally obtained the status of a tax exempt 591(c)(3) organization. It has always been my hope to make PinkFae Gaming a non-profit site to assist transgender players and developers and to educate to game designers about transgender representation. We have been providing you many good articles. Much of it is related to gaming, but there is also some of them that are centered around transgender streamers (for example SailorAmy). There is a beautiful article written about discovering yourself as a transgender through role play.
UPDATE: currently not accepting any other writers. Thank you for everyone that reached out wanting to be part of this organization. I was planning on getting some writers once the non-profit became official. Yet, now with coronavirus, the isolation and only non-essential business being open, it looks like it won’t happen until late spring or into the summer. Therefore, I decided to do this earlier.
After have been gone for three years, PinkFae Gaming is back. The original site was never renewed and all the information was lost. I gave up on my idea out of frustration. Now that I am retired I have plenty of time to give all of my energy to maintaining the new site.
The current domain has been purchased for ten years and will need to be renewed in 2030. This will help us get back on our feet and have time to raise funds for when it will need to be renewed. We are in the progress of making PinkFae Gaming a nonprofit organization. We hired a lawyer this time around to make sure that we can secure the status.
