GTA V Getting LGBT Pride Parade Mod

One of the least politically correct video game franchises is getting its own LGBT Pride parade, the Daily Dot reports. Yesterday, Scandinavian LGBT advocacy group Stockholm Pride released a trailer for their new unofficial “Los Santos Pride” mod for Grand Theft Auto V.

The trailer features exuberant LGBT folks of all races and genders celebrating and cheering alongside a Pride parade. Attendees dance, march and take photos just as they would at an IRL Pride. “Love is in the air,” reads a rainbow blimp in the sky. Players will be able to interface with the parade’s floats and bystanders.

A representative told the Daily Dot that the mod is a free pro-bono project with no financial incentive.

“Los Santos Pride” is a beautiful idea. And yet, it’s been met with extraordinary vitriol, even for YouTube: The trailer’s YouTube page is already rife with anti-LGBT hate. According to a quick count I just did, 16% of comments include the word “fag.” Others refer to pedophilia, killing female police officers and mass-murdering gay people.

Luckily, the mod’s floats will be indestructible, mirroring the idea that love conquers all.
