Women of Marvel On Creating An Inclusive Space With Black Girl Gamers

Find out how Black Girl Gamers paved the way for the future of community!

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.”
