Black Girl Gamers is an online community that aims to positively promote diversity and affect change within the gaming industry. Initially created as a safe space in 2015, void of the sexism and racism (misogynoir) widely experienced in gaming, the platform has grown from its original purpose to become the hub for all things gaming from the black woman perspective.
With a membership of 1500 multifaceted gamers, streamers and game developers that continues to grow, the BGG community has become a visible and impactful movement being featured in the press and on panels to provide insight into how Black Women experience gaming and how to progress forward.
Though the BGG community exists in a safe space, the movement is in no way exclusive. Our community expands into public discords and online streams to allow members and supporters to share and play together as one ‘BGG family’.
