Not (yet?) About LGBT People, But...

A new gaming website called Offworld just launched, with a focus on women and minority voices. 


From the announcement: ""Offworld is a place for curious and playful grown-ups... there will be an unequivocal and uncompromising home for women and minorities, whose voices will comprise most of the work published here,"".

As far as I can tell, there is no information about whether the site will also focus on LGBT individuals.  However, it's only just started and it seems like the site would want to include those voices as well.  There are currently only two journalists running the site (Leigh Alexander and Laura Hudson), so there's certainly space for more editors/contributors/voices.

Any thoughts?  I'll certainly be interested in following along as the site spins up and spits out more articles.

  1. Cool! Feminist and antiracist media always makes me super happy. Admittedly I know very little about the gaming world, outside of reading a few feminist think pieces on representation, Anita Sarkeesian, Gamergate, etc. I've thought/read very little about the intersection of queerness and gaming.

    Does anyone know of any good pieces or resources on queer representation or experiences in the gaming world? I'd be interested to learn more.
