Documentary Aims to Highlight Diversity in Gaming

Thursday, April 18, 2013

A group of diverse filmmakers are undergoing an ambitious attempt to celebrate and document the diversity of the gaming world on film. The folks at Gaming in Color state that “For too long gamers have been painted in a very specific light, and the mosaic of gamers have lacked the diversity of minorities, queers, women, and members of LGBT communities.”

They hope to unite LGBTQ gamers who may not realize how large their community is. Their intent is to bring the stories of marginalized and harassed gamers to the masses and help people realize that gamers don’t fit any one mold.

Their Kickstarter is $19,000 short of its goal with 22 days to go.
