Webinar Recording | Play with Pride: LGBTQ Inclusiveness and Safety in Gaming

Presented by Access Partnership and IGDA Foundation, this virtual panel discussion caps off Pride month with a lively discussion of the evolution, state-of-play, and path forward for LGBTQ inclusiveness and safety in video games and esports.

Experts, producers, and advocates address important issues such as diversity among gamers and developers; character creation, customization, and LGBTQ portrayal in games; games as a positive channel for self-exploration and connection; bad actors and harmful content; bias and discrimination in esports; and global public policy and regulatory considerations – past, present, and future.

– Grace Collins, Founder, Snowbright Studio
– Kaisu Karvala; Head of Europe & UK Region, Access Partnership; and former CCO, Rovio
