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 start the meeting with general updates, and then spend the rest of the time chatting and connecting, as well as bringing projects to share.
Everyone should please come prepared to talk with each other and welcome each other. If you'd like to present any projects, please come prepared with any items you need to present.
Note: Bringing something to show off (prototype, work-in-progress, or finished project) is encouraged. If you bring something, please be clear if you are looking for feedback or not. If you are interacting with someone's project, please ask them if the creator wants feedback. This is not a feedback workshop/session.
There will be optional discussion topics:
This month's optional discussion topic is about Burnout and Renewal of Energy.
- How do you prevent, detect, and deal with personal burnout?
- How do you renew your personal energy, your creative energy, and your projects?
- What does burnout look like in queer games communities? How does or how should a queer games community prevent, detect, and deal with burnout?
