Playing with Pride: When Game Culture and LGBTQ Culture Collide


What does sexuality have to do with gaming? Do same-sex romance options matter? What's the point of LGBT game conventions? And how can developers ensure that their games are engaging for queer players? Over the last three years, speaker Matt Baume and team have gathered video interviews with over a hundred LGBTQ gamers, developers, and journalists. In candid interviews, they've shared insights into what happens when queer culture and game culture collide: what works, what doesn't, and how the industry can address their unique interests. Join documentarian Matt Baume for a presentation of video clips, featuring first-hand accounts of the impact that games have on queer players. Through these interviews, meet dozens of LGBTQ gamers and learn about the features and content that matter to them.
