David Gil wants to make a documentary about the ever-growing community of LGBT gamers, and you're going to help him. Isn't that what Kickstarter is for?
Gil's project, Gaming in Color, aims to "take a closer look at the challenges and the growth of these communities in the gaming world." Gil himself is billed as a freelance director and cinematographer.
The gaming world is far more diverse than the media would have you think. To counter this, we'll be documenting the experiences of LGBT and women gamers / game developers to introduce perspectives you may not have seen before.
The rewards range from a DVD to the typical ridiculous $US10,000 trip, dinner and screening. But considering how often I still hear homophobic slurs being thrown around, by gamers and others alike, I think this is definitely something worth funding. The more prevalent the LGBT gaming community makes itself, the more educated — and less hateful — the rest of our little corner of the world will become.
So far the project has raised over $US5,000 of its $US50,000 goal, and it's still got 47 days to go.
