Voices of Authenticity: Best Practices for Casting & Representing Queerness


The increase in LGBTQIA+ characters and stories in gaming over the past few years is worth celebrating. But when it comes to telling those stories authentically, or casting more queer actors for voice and performance capture work, the results are mixed. Join Gay Gaming Professionals and leaders from Queer Vox, the nonprofit academy and community for LGBTQIA+ voice actors, as they relay how they became voice actors, what challenges they've faced, and why authentically told stories matter. Panelists will be available afterward for questions about diversity and representation.
