Queering Gaming: How to Make Your Game Group More Fun for Everyone discussion by Queer Table Tops. Creating gaming spaces that are actually inclusive and desirable to lots of people; including queer/trans folks, people of color, women, and neurodivergent individuals is more than sticking a BLM sticker and a rainbow flag in the corner. The way we game and the kind of awareness we have when gaming makes a significant difference in who wants to play with us. Queering gaming spaces is not just for queer people, but for folks who want to prioritize connection, joy, and maybe even healing for a wide array of people in table top games. Join Queer Table Tops as they cover some queer competency basics and then dive deeper into the nuances that often make or break whether a diversity of other people want to play games with you.
