The 3rd annual Queerness and Games Conference took place this past weekend, and once again it was absolutely amazing. A huge THANK YOU to everyone who made the event possible, including (but most certainly not limited to) the organizers Christopher Goetz, Chelsea Howe, Diana Mari Pozo, Dietrich “Squinky” Squinkifer, Zoya Street, and Bonnie Ruberg, pictured here in matching Pikachu hats (we’re a very serious bunch), as well as to our many volunteers.

Unfortunately, we don’t have video recordings of the QGCon talks this year, but if you’re interested to see who was speaking, we have a list of all the presenters and their abstracts. Lots of amazing games designers and scholars gave wonderful talks, including our keynotes Sandy Stone and Lindsay Grace. QGCon 2015 also featured a number of wonderful new games in our arcade. If you want to get into the festive QGCon spirit, check out these great photos from the event, taken by our wonderful volunteer photographer Dominic Dagradi. Of course, you can also find great tidbits in our @QGCon Twitter feed.

Thanks again, everybody! We can’t wait to see you next year.
