There’s a lot of fear and mystery around asking the wrong questions. Especially when it comes to transgender issues, both in video games, and in real life.

How do you ask for someones pronouns? What’s the difference between a non-binary person, and a genderqueer person? How do I write transgender characters into my game, without being disrespectful? How can I make my workplace more transgender inclusive?

Sav Ferguson, Charlie Cassidy, Snow McNally, Fae Daunt and Damon Reece assemble as a panel of gender diverse games developers, programmers, and writers to answer the questions you’ve always wanted to ask, but weren’t sure how to phrase.

Come sit down, and have a chat with us.
