Storyline

Diverse queer themes in game story lines and characters are 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 visibility and acceptance of an LGBTQ presence. Almost every gamer will relate to the concept of seeking solace in a video game. Hope for sanctuary guides their escape into a virtual universe where they can be anything they want to be. For many, however, choosing to be true to themselves becomes an open invitation for hatred. This multiplies for those who are marginalized people, including people of color, women, and members of the LGBTQ community. Toxic cultures that breed violence and vitriol hide behind a industry that undervalues the innovation of its audience. GAMING IN COLOR crusades for anyone who believes that the pixelated world can be a better place for everyone, no matter who ... Written by Anonymous

Gaming In Color: Powerful, geeky, heartfelt documentary
23 May 2015 | by thepoopsmithSee all my reviews

Gaming in Color is a a documentary about geek culture, gamer culture, and the ups and downs of being queer in these cultural niches. It discusses the issues of representation, micro-aggressions, and what it means to be gay in gaming and geek culture.

With many influential faces in both gaming and academia involved, this film brings the points it wants to to the table with poise and intelligence while being heartfelt.

A must watch for anyone who games, is queer, or is a queer gamer. You should watch it if you're not one of those to. Learn about others lives.
