Bad Rep: Dehumanisation & Vilification of Queerness in Games

Asexual androids, genderfluid aliens and bi vampires! Why are LGBTQIA+ characters so frequently portrayed as non-human or villainous? Is this type of representation helpful or harmful? Do queer people secretly have mysterious powers and want to destroy human civilisation? Join a group of queer monsters, robots and otherworldly beings from diverse backgrounds in gaming, as they answer these questions and more!
