Cast Reveals #2 and #3.
Today we’re introducing you to 2 more people that bring Gaming in Color to life: Colleen Macklin and Shane Cherry!
Colleen Macklin is an Associate Professor in the Department of Communication Design and Technology at Parsons The New School for Design in New York City, Director at PETLab, and a game designer (The Metagame). She was a featured speaker at QGCon (The Queerness and Games Conference) and the Different Games conference. Colleen brings a unique voice to Gaming in Color, speaking on why games matter, why they are important to culture, and how games can influence us as people and a society.
Shane Cherry is best known for his promoter work in organizing parties and events for the NYC Gaymers group, focusing on gaymer nightlife. He’s also written RPGs, has experience in journalism, and occasionally blogs as the Quintessential Gaymer. In Gaming in Color, Shane talks about his experiences growing up as gay AND a geek, and recognizes the importance of having an inviting and inclusive community. He uses the term ‘gaymer’ as a common flag to achieve that.
Colleen and Shane are very different in their type of work, and their distinct stories and knowledge make Gaming in Color a varied film that can satisfy all kinds of gaymers.
