Queer as a Three-Sided Die
Industry panelists lead discussion of gender and sexuality issues in gaming from design and publishing to game-play and community. Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered people are a part of the gamer community. Although the gaming community is known for its tolerance, LGBT people still often struggle to see places for themselves in the fantasy worlds we create.
Queering Your Setting
Where do LGBTQIA folk fit into your fiction or gaming setting? How do you introduce queer characters in a way that is natural and non-offensive? Come join industry panelists while we talk about techniques and advice for doing so, and answer some of your questions about it.
Queering Your Pantheon
If setting myth reflects setting reality, then is there diversity and inclusion in your pantheon? Our panel of RPG industry pros discusses how to make your mythology include everyone.
Catharsis Through Gaming: Empathy, Escapism, or Empowerment?
Game design gives us many approaches to handle unique minority experiences. We can be empowered to fight, escape to worlds without stigma, or teach others to empathize with our unique challenges.
