Galaxy Gaming Session: Diversity & Inclusion in Gaming
Join us at Samsung 837 for our next Galaxy Gaming Session in partnership with NYC Gaymers, a member-led community of LGBTQIA+ gamers that works to uplift marginalized voices within their community. The group creates safe spaces online and offline with an emphasis on inclusion, visibility, and cultural diversity.
Start the evening with a brief product tutorial on the latest in Samsung gaming technology. Then, watch a special preview of TransGeek, a documentary that explores the intersection of gender identity and geek culture. After, listen to an insightful panel discussion, featuring NYC Gaymers (@officialnycgaymers) and Kevin McCarthy (@transgeekmovie), the filmmaker behind TransGeek. The panel will be moderated by Lucy Diavolo (@satansjacuzzi), Politics News Editor at Teen Vogue, Naomi Clark (@metasynthie), co-chair of NYU Game Center, Jo Lee (@callmejolee), gamer and co-host of This QPOC Life podcast, Tess Leiman (@dabesstess), NYU Game Design Alum and developer of Kril, and Charles Battersby (@fascinatingstranger), game designer and cosplayer.
Following the panel, play and compete on Xbox and select Samsung devices, including the Odyssey Z, Tab S4, and Galaxy S10+. Don’t miss this exciting #SamsungExperience featuring the NYC gaming community, meaningful conversation, and the thrill of competition.
