Manage episode 363440547 series 2950608
Today we’ve invited a group of individuals to join us to discuss, what we think, is an important topic in gaming, inclusion. Specifically, LGBTQIA+ and gaming. To find out more about our guests please follow the links below.
Eric Crumrine from "The QueerXP"
Jonathon From "RollgayRoleplay"
Tish Ah From "RollgayRoleplay"
Elizabeth Murphy From "Rising Phoenix GameCon"
These are the talking points:
- What has been a positive representation of queerness in a TTRPG that you’ve played?
- What suggestions do you have for GM’s who are not LGBTQ who wish to introduce queer themes and representation into their games?
- A queer person has been introduced as a character in your favorite DnD stream/podcast. You check the comments and you see Dudebro ask “why are we making this political?
- Do you consider the exclusion, or policing of cishet men at your table a double standard? And what do you say to this group when they retaliate with something like “well I guess it’s wrong to be a straight man in modern society….”
- Are there games you’ve played or run that highlight LGBTQ+ characters/themes/etc.?
- What measures do you have in place for when someone violates the expectations of the table, especially if you’re playing a game at a convention or game store?
- Has D&D or other role-playing games helped you to find yourself?
- How can we as a community, make the table, welcoming for LGBTQIA + players?
