About the Movie

Gaming in Color exists for anyone who believes that the pixelated world can be a better place for everyone, no matter who they are. It is not too uncommon a tale where a bullied, abused youth seeks solace in a video game, only to find that their one hope of sanctuary, their escape into a virtual universe, is plagued with floods of more vitriol and hatred. This exists doubly so for anyone who is a minority, including people of color, women, and members of the LGBTQ community. A lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or otherwise queer gamer has a higher chance of being mistreated in a social game. The power dynamic of a geek society tips against them. Diverse queer themes in story lines and characters are still mostly an anomaly in the mainstream video game industry. However, the gaming community is far more colorful than one may expect. Gaming in Color shows that there is a full spectrum of gamers picking up their controller to play. This feature length documentary explores the queer side of gaming culture and the game industry's LGBTQ presence. More popular mainstream and indie games have featured a greater amount of gay and lesbian characters than ever before, helping with visibility and acceptance. The video games universe will only continue to improve and diversify both in its community and industry if we elevate the conversation about inclusion and respecting one another - not in spite of our gay geekiness, but because of it!

Customer Reviews

Fantastic!

A great documentary about diversity, representation of marginalized voices, and equality in one of the most engaging forms of media--games.

If you consider yourself a gamer or a gaymer, this is a must watch! If you consider yourself an ally, or put a lot of thought into representation in media, you should watch this. You should just watch this regardless, because it is good, insightful, and heartfelt.

Gaymers!!

Gaymers get a voice in the gaming industry! :D

Documentary Guy

I watch a lot of documentaries and I enjoyed this one because it was a subject that I'd really never thought about at all -- LGBT treatment within the world of gaming. I confess, some of the title cards moved by too quickly for my liking, but, then again, I'm a regrettably slow reader sometimes!
