Black Girl Gamers

From arcade games to Marvel's Iron Man VR, Marvel has been a mainstay of the gaming world since its humble beginnings. Today, the gaming community includes billions of players from all over the globe, including Jay-Ann Lopez and Chelsea Cueto, whose legions of followers comprise their gaming collective, Black Girl Gamers (BGG).

Women of Marvel hosts Angélique and Judy recently called up Jay-Ann and Chelsea to discuss how BGG has paved the way for the future of the community by creating a safe, inclusive space for women of color in gaming.

Speaking on the subject, Jay-Ann revealed, “It’s just about dismantling that, that over-dominating narrative about who says what a gamer is, and there’s still people that try and do that right now, but they’re getting overridden because social media is democratizing everything.”
