Love, understanding, equality and diversity – these are words you probably wouldn’t associate with GTA 5, but there’s a mod from Stockholm Pride that aims to change all that, bringing a Pride parade to the streets of Los Santos.
It’s amazing what you can do with the right tools. For more creative freedom, check our list of the best sandbox games.
“GTA 5 takes place in Los Santos, a city that offers everything from burger joints and night clubs to supermarkets and fashion outlets. In short, Los Santos has everything you can expect from a real city. Well, except for one thing: a Pride parade,” says the blurb on the Los Santos Pride mod site.
“Stockholm Pride proudly presents Los Santos Pride – a free unofficial mod for GTA 5 that gives you a festive Pride parade on the streets of Los Santos. Available for PC.”
It looks like it’s well made, too, even featuring UK DJ Pete Tong on the radio. Here’s the trailer:
Since the mod’s announcement, people have raised concerns about the nature of the game being used to bring violence to the parade, but fortunately the mod’s developers had the foresight to stop that from happening.
Christian Valtersson, president at Stockholm Pride told Pink News: “We’ve made the parade indestructible. Not to moralise, but rather to show that love will always triumph over hate.
“The message of love and equality is always needed and we are happy that players get to host their own Los Santos Pride parade.”
