A new Kickstarter campaign has been launched to raise $125,000 to create a documentary about the "queer side of gaming," or the LGBTQ presence in the game industry and in the gaming community. The documentary is called "Gaming In Color: Queers and Gaymers of the Pixelated World" and hopes to expose the masses to another side of gaming culture – a side that is often hidden among the dudebros and gamer gurls of the community. The documentary will explore the good and bad side of the culture and show what some in the community are doing to elevate the conversation about inclusion and respecting one another – no matter who you are.
While GaymerConnect (the organizers of the event formerly known as GaymerCon and now called Gaymer X 2013) is not making the new documentary, some of the event's organizers will appear in it.
You can find the Kickstarter campaign here and watch the pitch video to your left.
The organizers are also looking for personal stories about being an LGBTQ gamer or developer, so if you have one to share that is interesting, you can contact kayceATgaymerconnectDotcom.
