The University of Brighton partners with local AAA developers to host Brighton’s first GAY(M) JAM, a collaborative competition celebrating inclusion and diversity within gaming.
Dr Panagiotis Fotaris, Games course leader at the University of Brighton commented “With such huge potential as a storytelling format, games are a great opportunity to respectfully explore and depict various identities and orientations. The GAY(M) JAM allowed participants to develop games that promoted LGBTQ+ inclusivity and depicted sexuality in a positive way.”
