Hello! All this week we’ve been celebrating Pride and the power of positive representations in games. Every day we’ve been bringing you stories and insights from different parts of the LGBT+ community, and if you’ve missed any of our previous Pride Week features, you’ll find a full list below. You can also help support Pride with Eurogamer’s newly redesigned t-shirt – all profits from which will be going to charity.
I’ve dedicated half a decade to diversity and inclusion in games. I am the managing director of Queerly Represent Me (a charity focused on improving representation in games and the industry), I’m co-chair of the IGDA LGBTQ+ SIG, I’m an ambassador for inclusion initiatives as part of my role at Sledgehammer Games, and I have written more articles and given more talks on this topic than I can even count anymore.
I have studied many forms of marginalisation because to work in diversity requires us to think intersectionally, but I started out looking at representations of queerness. Because of this (as well as my own bisexuality), Pride Month holds a special place in my heart.
