The research organisation and resource hub and recently expanded its offering.
Queerly Represent Me has just launched a new Podcast and Interview series alongside a Patreon funding model.
The ‘book’ club podcast is now available and is hosted by team members, Jess and Saf. Each episode discusses a ‘game of the month’, chatting with a special guest from the game industry, and sharing the opinions that the Queerly Represent Me community shares throughout each month. The first episode features QRM Founder, Alayna Cole as a special guest, with the three discussing Life is Strange.
QRM has also launched an interview series with queer folks working in the games industry. The series will speak to both established and emerging interviewees, learning about their experiences within the industry and seeking their opinion on what queer and non-queer people can be doing to support them and their voices. New interviews will be published on the site every Wednesday.
Alongside the two new products, QRM have created more ways for people to support the work that they do, and now boasts a Patreon. People can become a regular patron in exchange for early access, membership of their Discord channel, and other rewards.
Speaking with MCV Pacific, Alayna Cole, founding director of Queerly Represent Me said, ‘We are excited to be creating new ways to talk about queer representation, and to amplify the voices of queer folks who are working in the industry. We hope our new podcast and interview series will help game players feel more involved in the work we do without needing to attend conferences or conventions, which are often expensive, infrequent, and require travel. We are trying to develop more ways to educate people about queer representation—in games and in the games industry—and to provide actionable steps people can take if they want to make a difference.’
