“Diversity in games is a huge problem that the industry knows about, and is going to have to do something about,” says game developer Naomi Clark in the trailer for Gaming in Color, a documentary film about queer and genderqueer players and creators in the world of video games.

Created by Midboss, the company behind the GaymerX convention, the film deals with the harassment faced by LGBT gamers, the importance of representing them within games themselves, and the shifts already taking place within gaming and game development communities. “There are a lot of gamer and game designers who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or genderqueer who are really seeking to reinvent games,” says Clark.

The film is now available through on a plethora of sources: iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Playstation, Xbox and more.
