Happy holidays and welcome back to our ‘Meet the 2017 Organizers’ series, where we showcase one of our dedicated organizers working behind the scenes of QGCon to make it all happen!
This week in the spotlight is Jasmine Aguilar, lending her talents to our 2017 QGCon Arcade and keeping the website up-to-date!
Pronouns: she/her/hers and they/them/theirs
What city do you live in?: Sunny Los Angeles!
What identities do you hold?: I identify as a genderqueer, bisexual, first generation, femme xicanx with a high functioning mental illness
What are your favorite games?: Animal Crossing! Style Savvy: Fashion Forward, TsumTsums, Astoria: Fate’s Kiss, Donkey Kong Country, Left 4 Dead 2, Bayonetta, Overwatch, Mary Kate and Ashley: Magical Mystery Mall…. just to name a few :p
If you could live in any game world, what would it be? Why?: I would either love to live in a super cute, whimsical world like in Tearaway where I could relax, explore, and cuddle with the other magical creatures ORRRR in Overwatch where I was a badass character with a special superpower (and a super cool outfit) helping protect the world.
What about QGcon are you most excited about?: This will be my first ever QGCon so I’m really excited about everything, tbh! I think I am most excited about getting to know the many beautiful folx that make up the queer games community <3
Update that the submissions for the 2017 Arcade are now closed. Our wonderful arcade committee will be reviewing the submitted games and sending out notifications in mid-January!
