Announcing Winter Pride 2023, supporting Point of Pride!

Join us this December, from the 14th through the 17th as we run games fast to raise money for Point of Pride and their much needed programs supporting trans people in need of health and wellness care. The money raised will go to covering gender-affirming care - such as electrolysis, HRT, and surgery - as well as providing free binders and shapewear.

Since 2016, Point of Pride has been providing direct assistance to trans, non-binary, genderqueer, gender nonconforming, and gender expansive people in 110 countries in the form of grants for gender-affirming healthcare, electrolysis, and clothing assistance. For more information, please visit their website at www.pointofpride.org.

If you can't wait for December to donate, you can give directly to Point of Pride at any time! Applications for their Annual Transgender Surgery Fund grants open November 1st and your money will go to help those in need.

Submissions for Winter Pride 2023 are closed! Check out our event schedule! If you'd like to submit for our summer event in 2024, keep an eye on our socials and check out our Discord server!

See you all this December for Winter Pride 2023!

Power Up With Pride 2024: To Be Announced!

What is PUWP?

Power Up With Pride: benefiting LGBTQIA+ charities, featuring LGBTQIA+ speedrunners.

Founded in 2016, Power Up With Pride is a video gaming charity marathon, created by the LGBTQIA+ speedrunning community for the community at large. During our Summer and Winter Pride events, we showcase speedruns, challenge runs, and community games, with an emphasis on LGBTQIA+ and ally runners. We do this while coming together as a community to raise money for LGBTQIA+ charities, in hopes of providing a comfortable and exciting online environment for queer folks in the gaming community.

How do I watch?

Code of Conduct

We expect all participants to follow these rules within all Power Up With Pride events and within all official Power Up With Pride communication channels. This policy is subject to changes without notice.

Power Up With Pride is dedicated to providing an enjoyable event for everyone and expects participants at our events to act in a way that promotes an environment that is harassment-free, safe, comfortable, and enjoyable to be a part of.

Our events are for everyone, regardless of that person's gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion, veteran status, socioeconomic status, or criminal record. We do not tolerate harassment of event participants in any form.

You agree that when at one of our events, you will behave in a way that enables our expected environment and will not, by way of example, and not as a limitation:

Anyone asked to stop inappropriate behavior is expected to comply at once.

If a participant engages in inappropriate behavior, the event organizers will take necessary action to preserve a welcoming environment for all other attendees. This is a zero-tolerance policy.

If someone makes you or anyone else feel unsafe or unwelcome, please report it as soon as possible by direct messaging a chat moderator or event staff as listed on the Twitch profile for Power Up With Pride.

When taking a report, our event staff and team will make sure you are safe and keep the incident confidential. We’ll ask you to tell us about what happened -- this can be upsetting, but we'll handle it as respectfully as possible. We may involve other event staff to make sure your report is managed properly, and we may inform chat moderators that an incident has occurred.
