Are you an LGBTQ+ games creator? Want to work alongside other queer people in games? Whether you do programming, design, art, writing, music, or more, come and join us for a meetup of community-building, collaborating, discussion, and co-working.

For this meeting, we’ll have optional discussion topics. Be prepared to bring your listening ears and any level of participation you want for the following topics:

1. Any SQUID updates
2. Introductions, what are you working on? How is it going? (15 min, as a large group, round-table format)
3. Warm-up: What is something about games you learned about recently? (15 min, as a large group, round-table format)
4. Break out! Optional guided discussion topics:
- What is something about games you learned about recently?
- How did you get into games?
- A lot of people get into games as a younger person. Do you have any, or do you know of any experiences around getting into games as an adult? What challenges were there? What interesting things were there?
- How do you predict your relationship with games and queerness will change over time?
5. 8:00 pm optional check-in. Do we need to wrap up and conclude? Do we want to move venues to all sit and chill together?
