We’re Here, We’re Queer, Now What? LGBTQ in the industry

We’re here, we’re queer, what’s next? Being queer in the games industry means navigating a lot of things—and sometimes even publicly! How do you learn to build healthy boundaries around what you do and don’t want to share online? What are some of the risks you face when you’re openly queer in games? How do you create, market, or discuss a game that’s inclusive of queer identities that are both your own, and not your own? From game developers to journalists and entertainers, we’re here to explore the world of queerness in games in (and out) of the workplace.
