New documentary delves into the game industry's LGBTQ presence

April 22, 2014 | By Alex Wawro




You can now pay what you want for Gaming In Color, a feature-length documentary film that seeks to elucidate and explore what it means to be a part of the LGBTQ community within the game industry.

The film -- produced by Ryan Paul and directed by Philip Jones -- features interviews with game developers, activists, journalists and educators from across the industry, including Naomi Clark, George Skleres and Colleen Macklin.

It was funded via Kickstarter campaign last year with additional support from MidBoss, the folks behind GaymerX and Read Only Memories.

The final product runs just over an hour and focuses on exploring why games matter, how they can affect popular culture, what hate speech and bigotry can do to virtual communities, and how that can affect people when they play games.

"This documentary, through the voices and experiences of our hardworking and talented cast, shows what a strong and passionate movement that diversity and acceptance in video games has become," stated Jones in a press release announcing the film's release. "It really is an inspiring call to action."
