Bonnie Ruberg Discusses Queerness and Games

BCNM DE Bonnie Ruberg discusses queerness and videogames as well as the UC Berkeley Queerness and Games Conference in this article from First Person Scholar. She has served as the guest editor for a series of four issues of the online journal, which publishes dynamic critical writing on games. In Bonnie's introduction, "Video Games, Queerness, and Beyond," she makes a case for the importance of talking about queerness when we talk about games.
