June 7 Meditation (Ronja Boehringer)

It’s a bad news day for today’s Meditation.

The game itself is simple and sweet. You control one colourful dot of several. Move towards one of the others and it’ll follow yours, but only for a while, just shorter than the length of time it would take you to grab one of the others and also have it follow you. But after a while, a large translucent grey circle comes in and gathers all these dots together, so that you can have several of them with you at once. The creator writes about the difference between meeting other queer people incidentally and joining a local queer group.

There’s an awful news story being shared a lot today, about a woman and her girlfriend who were physically assaulted by a group of men who had been asking them to kiss. It’s a pretty stark response to anyone who thinks that society has progressed past the point at which LGBTQ people need the kind of support that comes from a group like the one mentioned by the creator of today’s Meditation.
