Erasure from Within: Building a Better MOGII Gaming Community

I feel that often, the 'LGBT gaming' label silences and excludes non-binary individuals, transgender gamers, gamers of color that are on the MOGII spectrum, and tends to focus on white middle class gay male gamers and their issues in gaming. While this is a good 'first step/talking point' there is much more to address about the overall inclusiveness of the 'LGBT gaming' space, and how it can be a very unsafe space for many on the MOGII spectrum, despite being labelled a 'welcoming community'. How can we build safer and more inclusive online gaming communities? This short presentation will discuss that and more.
