Queerness and Games 2020


The 6th annual Queerness and Games Conference is coming soon!

The Queerness and Games Conference (QGCon) is an annual, community-oriented, nationally-recognized event dedicated to exploring the intersection of LGBTQ issues and video games. QGCon got its start at UC Berkeley, where it was hosted in 2013, 2014, and 2015. It then moved to Los Angeles in 2017, and then Montréal in 2018. It will be hosted again in Montréal in May 2020. The event is free and open to the public.

Accessibility, inclusion, and creativity are key values of QGCon. We seek to foster dialogue between scholars, game developers, and game players. QGCon audiences are diverse. We believe in an intersectional approach to queerness. Addressing topics of gender, race, ability, body type, class, etc. reminds us that the struggles (and victories) of those of us who play from the margins are interconnected.
