We met at SXSW?


Thanks for checking out the site. I’ve collected some resources and links to things I thought might be helpful for you as you learn a bit more about our org. I figured it’d be easier if it were all in one place, instead of having to comb through the site to find it.

Take a moment to buzz through this page, be sure to check out our partners program, and get in touch once you have a better idea of what we’re all about.

I look forward to working with you!

A bit about us.

The Partners Program

The goal of the partners program is to build relationships with organizations that share our value of a gaming community that is welcoming to all gamers.

This relationship can be low-maintenance. You can sign on to be a GAB Partner, allowing you to place our logo on our site as a way of signifying that you are an inclusive organization. In turn, we’ll feature your logo on our Partners Page, connecting our community with your organization.

Or the relationship can be developmental. We’d love to help you engage our community and to create products and initiatives that are welcoming to gamers of all identities. And we’re also always open to input on how we can achieve our mission better as an organization.

Let’s work together to improve our community.

Educational Resources

In addition to hosting the pledge, we are spending a great deal of our energy on creating educational resources to engage the gaming community on issues of inclusivity and safety. We are doing this through weekly themed discussions on Facebook and Twitter as well as blog posts here on the site.

But the thing we’re most excited about is our in-the-works inclusivity document. The goal of this document is to create a one-stop resource for game developers and industry folks who are looking to make their products more appealing to all gamers, as well as creating systems of accountability that encourage welcoming communities. We are modeling this document after AbleGamer’s Includification document, in hopes that the two documents will be able to complement one another and aid game developers in their efforts.

If this is something that sounds appealing to you, or something you’d like to help with, get in touch.

Let us know what you think

James Buckley, our Director of PR, would love to hear from you regarding the organization, the Partners Program, or anything in between. If you are planning on signing the pledge (scroll down a tiny bit for that), or encouraging members of your organization to do so, he’d love to hear why. And if you have suggestions for our forthcoming inclusivity document, that’s even better!

Shoot him an email at [email protected] and get the conversation going.


The Pledge:

As a gamer, I realize I contribute to an incredibly diverse social network of gamers around the world, and that my actions have the ability to impact others. In effort to make a positive impact, and to create a community that is welcoming to all, I pledge to not use bigoted language while gaming, online and otherwise.

Bigoted language includes, but is not limited to, slurs based on race? (e.g, "chink," "nigger," "wetback"), ethnicity? (e.g., "kyke," "polock"), gender? (e.g., "cunt," "bitch," "tranny"), religion? (e.g., "dirty jew," "papist"), sexual orientation? (e.g., "gay," "fag[got]," "dyke"), and disability? (e.g., "retard[ed]").
