LGBTQIA+ games from Oceania and Asia Pacific.

Pride at Play is a curated exhibition of LGBTQIA+ games from Oceania and Asia Pacific. It is a celebration of thoughtful videogames and tabletop games made by queer folks for queer players. The event will be free to the public for two weeks during Pride Amplified, as part of the Sydney WorldPride festival.

The exhibition is organised by a team of volunteering game designers, researchers and curators who love queer games. It is supported by grants, university institutions, and queer game designers who continue to push boundaries of what games can become.

Where: Sydney College of the Arts Project Space (map)
When: 21 February to 4 March, 2023.

Submissions

We welcome all kinds of queer games, including but not limited to videogames, interactive experiences, tabletop games, roleplaying games, and art games made in Oceania and Southeast Asia.

Submit your game via the online form. Pride at Play is open to games which explore queer possibilities which exist in physical and digital formats. Whether your game runs on a computer, on the tabletop, or requires a custom set up, this exhibition is open to games in all mediums.

The curators will get in touch with successful entries to exhibit your game in the best possible light. To do this, we will schedule a time in early January 2023 to have an informal chat with you about your game. You will have a choice of how you’d like to communicate with us, such as via a call or over email.

Successful entries will receive a small token of gratitude, as well as a physical copy of the exhibition catalogue. All proceedings generated during the exhibition will go towards charity that works with LGBTQIA+ communities.

Submission deadline: 15 December, 2022. We will notify outcomes by email at the end of the year.

If you have any questions about the curation process, you can contact the organisers at hello@prideatplay.org.
