We have seen quite an increase in sincere Queer representation in games in the last few years, where it once used to be absent. However, this representation in mainstream media has been by and far centered in romantic relationships, ignoring the many facets of Queerness that make up the day to day of LGBTQ+ people.
Queerness impacts all axes of our lives, and players should be able to see this prism of experiences represented outside of relationships.
Join Adanna Nedd, Gabriel Hicks, Dani Lalonders, Sena Bryer and Sandra "Maxi" Molina as we analyze the many ways Queerness can be explored beyond romance.
Attendees will learn about the many ways to experience Queer narratives that sit beyond the exclusively romantic conception. Queerness is an umbrella of identities, and their stories deserve to be recognized too.
Writers and creators who want to diversify the storylines they create for Queer characters. Players who wish to expand their resources for identifying Queer topics.
