LGBTQ+ Representation in Video Games

Looking for ways to keep the conversation going about LGBTQ+ issues with your ERG, community group, or PFLAG chapter? Welcome to Something to Talk About, a monthly series designed by PFLAG National’s Straight for Equality program to create conversation about LGBTQ+ issues. Each month we’ll offer an article on LGBTQ+ topics and suggest a few questions you can use to lead a discussion.

We hosted a conversation about this article as a part of PFLAG Connects and Something to Talk About Live on Thursday, August 27. Did you miss it? You can still watch it here!

Questions for Discussion:

  1. Do the results of the Nielsen study outlined in this article surprise you? Why or why not?
  2. If you were going to recommend specific games to LGBTQ+ gamers what would they be? Are there organizations or individuals that you recommend gamers connect with to learn more about the experience of LGBTQ+ gamers?
  3. In your opinion, what do you think is the future of LGBTQ+ gaming? What do you think LGBTQ+ and ally gamers can do to create that future?
