thoughtful queer 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 roleplaying games made by queer folks for queer players.
The exhibition featured as part of the program for the inaugural Hunt-Simes Institute in Sexuality Studies which brings together emerging researchers and internationally recognised sexuality studies scholars to reimagine the Queer classroom.
Pride at Play is presented in association with St Kilda Film Festival, supported by Monash Art, Design and Architecture and hosted by the City of Port Phillip.
