It’s our first Queer Gamer episode on This QPOC Life! We’re focusing on a series that is near and dear to each one of us: Final Fantasy. From fiction to fashion, Final Fantasy has served us some imaginative realness through the decades. What better way to honor the 30 year old series than to gush on and on about it for an hour and a half!? Even if you’re not a Gamer (or “gaymer”) or you never played Final Fantasy, we encourage you to listen!
On The Tea
- The backlash after the Tangerine Tyrant calls Haiti and other African nations “shithole countries”.
- The current Administration rescinds protections for 200,000 Salvadorans taking refuge in the United States.
- Disney paints stunt doubles and animal handlers in brown face on set of the live action adaptation of Aladdin.
- Oprah’s historic Golden Globe achievement and acceptance speech. Should she be President of the US?
Feeling the Final Fantasy
We asked you how video games have been an important part of your life and your self-care. We discuss some of the stories you had to share!
How does Final Fantasy treat queerness? What responsibility does Final Fantasy have in depicting POC? Who has the best dress? Who could get it? We share our thought and want you tell us what you think in the comments below.
