Head over to gamingcolor.vhx.tv for more details and to watch the film today.
Gaming In Color is a full length documentary exploring the queer side of gaming: the queer gaming community, gaymer culture and events, and the rise of LGBTQ themes in video games. Diverse queer themes in storylines and characters are still mostly an anomaly in the mainstream video game industry, and LGBTQ gamers have a higher chance of being mistreated in social games. Gaming In Color explores how the community culture is shifting and the industry is diversifying, helping with queer visibilty and acceptance of an LGBTQ presence.
