It’s hard to believe, but there are now less than three months left until the 2017 Queerness and Games Conference (QGCon). After three years in Berkeley, QGCon is coming to Los Angeles for the first time this spring. The event will be at the University of Southern California, hosted by the Interactive Media and Games Division — my department! — on Saturday, 4/1 and Sunday, 4/2. Registration is now open. If you register early, you even get a super cute gift to show off your queer games pride.
Even though QGCon (more or less) only happens once a year, there are months of planning that go into each event. My amazing 2017 co-organizers and I have been meeting since late summer to put together all the pieces for this year. The schedule isn’t quite out yet, but we can say that we have an impressive lineup of speakers and sessions — more than ever before! We also have two great keynotes: T. L. Taylor from MIT on the academic side and John Epler from Bioware on the developer side.
There’s so much more to do in the next three months… but, hey, in the meantime, tell your friends and get ready to have an amazing time at QGCon 2017!
