LGBTQIA+ / Queer as a theme in games

Work in progress, I will aim to add links and synopsis.

I’m initially going to split these into three categories. This list is not fully researched or a recommendation of any game.

Board Games with LGBTQIA+ as a theme in the game play.
Board Games which support LGBTUQIA+ passively in the game play.
RPGs with LGBTQIA+ as a theme.

Terminology Note: Queer has been reclaimed by many LGBTQIA+ folks. There are a variety of terms and for this article I’ve chose two strong ones with inclusion and searchability in mind.
