This week on the show, we return to a topic we touched on a couple of years ago, the state of LGBT+ representation in the world of gaming. Where are we now and where do we need to go? Join Luke, Elliot, Cam and newcomer Hailey as they breakdown what representation in gaming looks like right now. We look at characters from the hero shooter genre joining the community, the need for diversity in development to create diverse representation and we question the idea of people within our community discussing difficult topics for our community in the gaming general public. Don’t miss any of the action and don’t forget to check out the first half of this podcast to keep up to date!
