A Serious Slumber Party About Boys

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Men in games - they're everywhere, but how are they characterized? What makes masculinity in games the default, and how does that affect everyone who plays games? Join us for a discussion on topics such as homosociality, complex masculinity, and how the industry would benefit from a shift in the way men are portrayed and perceived in games.
