Community Rules: Please Read

Alright, since we're beginning to get enough people to generate a little friction, here are some simple ground rules for the community.

Rule 0) Extend everybody the benefit of a doubt. Don't assume malfeasance.

Rule 1) Be polite. If you object to something that Google will want flagged, flag it. For everything else, send me a message. Politeness is a social lubricant and I think we can all get behind a good lube.

Rule 2) Don't post porn. Just don't. Yes, that includes pictures of your junk, no matter how well groomed, pretty and/or impressive it may be.

Rule 3) Don't spam. No 'repost this or you will die a Republican' memes. No advertising your psychic nail salon. Do feel free to advertise anything that intersects queer and gaming interests or culture, including your games, podcasts or whatever.

Rule 4) Don't make me think up any new rules or I shall be forced to deploy the tree of woe.

So... what's some cool LGBTQ+ stuff that I could enjoy/support/participate in? Any queer games on Kickstarter? Projects need funding on Indiegogo? Online groups that are noteworthy for being awesome? Fabulous online comics or blogs?

As a bereaved, middle-aged queer guy, I guess I could do with something to make me feel like I'm participating or putting back into the community in a way that means something to me. So what's out there?

Thanks to +Bryan Thao Worra able camerawork, there is evidence that I was on a Diversicon panel yesterday with the incredible Charlie Jane Anders (in the center), and Rivendeller Supreme, David Lenander. The topic was the current boom in SF&F lit and media featuring LGBTQ+ characters, including trans, non-binary, etc.

One of the nice things about organizing an LGBTQ+ gaming relaxicon is that you can run the kind of games you'd like to play-in without any need for self-censorship. Here's my MCC game blurb for ConFabulous:

Mutant Crawl Classics RPG: From Queertown to the Forbidden Zone:
A group of youth must complete their do-or-die rite of passage to adulthood by surviving a journey into the Forbidden Zone. Bring back something of value to Queertown, like an artifact or weapon from before the Big Bang! Avoid being eaten by mutated monsters! Keep away from the Glow! You can do it!

I'm really pleased with the PC lineup for my Doctor Who game this Saturday at Source Comics and Games:

-Lady Vastra and her wife Jenny Flint, and their Sontaran butler, Strax

-Big game hunter John Riddell, his lover Queen Nefertiti, and their son, Tutanhkamun

-Padmini and Krishnendu Chakrabarti of the Indian Space Agency

Should be a good game!

The August reading for the North Country Gaylaxians Reading Group is Andrea Hairston's **Will Do Magic for Small Change. We gather on the second Tuesday of the month at 7 PM at Quatrefoil Library in South Minneapolis. We're friendly! A lot of us are gamers too! Come join us!

Andrea Hairston's last book, Redwood and Wildfire was an amazing novel about Seminole culture, African American folk magic, and Black Hollywood in turn of the century Chicago. If you were going to run a game of Harlem Unbound, but in Chicago, that would be a good resource. I am really excited to read Andrea's latest!

Next up for the North Country Gaylaxians' Reading Group, on Tuesday, July 10, 7 PM at Quatrefoil Library in South Minneapolis, is the SF anthology Cyber World: Tales of Humanity's Tomorrow. The anthology isn't super-heavy on LGBTQ content, but there are LGBTQ authors here, including Nisi Shawl and Cat Rambo. If you're a Shadowrun fan, it will make you long to get a game together, even though the stories have a wider range of themes and content than '80s/'90s cyberpunk.

Paul Graham Raven's story "Staunch" has particularly nervy paraphase of Rutger Hauer's poem in Bladerunner:

"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe: surveillance drones on fire off the shoulder of Scafell Pike..."
