LGBTQ+ Roundtable

A roundtable discussion led by Ugonna Nwosu (he/him) from "Out Making Games" and Leon Killin (he/him) from "Sumo Group". Join us for a conversation about sexuality and gender issues in the content, creation and culture of video games. This is a welcoming space to share your stories and learn from the experience of others in a forum of LGBTQ+ games professionals and students having frank conversations about the challenges they face.


We will be leveraging the experiences of the attendees to build takeaways such as

  • An understanding of the concerns of LGBTQ+ individuals working in the games industry
  • Techniques shared from first-hand experiences of celebrating diversity in workplaces
  • Tips and tricks for pushing for better in-game representation from within the industry
  • Building a sense of community and optimism for the future!
