Livestream: Playing with Pride

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What does sexuality have to do with gaming? What's the point of LGBT game conventions? Do same-sex romance options matter? And can gamers find love on Grindr? Over the last two years, Matt Baume and James Morris have interviewed more than 100 queer gamers and developers across the country, capturing stories of navigating between subcultures, overcoming struggles, building communities, and changing gaming for the better. In a special livestream from their home base in Seattle, Matt and James will present video highlights of the interviews, featuring dozens of queer gamers who play with pride in two sometimes-contradictory worlds.

Stick around for a Q&A with Matt and James after the presentation.
