Queer Games, a meeting on lgbtq+ video games

On June 16 at 3pm, Ce Quimera + Gaia Leandra, resident collectives of Wetlab, present Queer Games, a meeting on lgbtq+ video games, in collaboration with Chloe Desmoineaux.

Lgbtq+ characters have been appearing in video games since the 1980s. In the history of video games, LGBT characters have been almost non-existent for a long time, reflecting general heteronormativity.

Why talking about queerness when talking about video games? Queerness is a form of sexuality, but it is also a way of thinking, of living, of feeling: differently. When we talk about queerness in video games, we talk about fair and equal representation of LGBTQ characters, but also about queer theory, queer design, and queer gaming. We need to talk about queerness in video games because we need games and the way we approach them to reflect the full richness of the multiple ways in which each of us lives, loves, and desires.
