MYNNO and diversity in the game

While viewers will be watching the tournament from their homes, the Halo Infinite Invitational will have a social element.

“We wanted to use this as a way for creators to network with like-minded people, but more importantly, to make new friends at the end of the day,” said the founder of MYNNO. Timothy Kurston.

Timothy also acknowledged that minorities can find it difficult to be seen in their communities. At worst, gamers may need to validate why they are passionate about video games in the first place.

“Creating events like this shines the spotlight on talented and amazing creators, giving them a platform to talk and share their work with others,” he said.

Timothy added that the goal of the tournament is to empower individuals in the playing space while standing up for them in the eyes of the world.

He noted that with the end of 2021, MYNNO wanted to do something fun and inclusive for their communities and Toronto.
