This month I was interviewed by a girl gamer after my own heart; JoAnna Gootee is an interviewer for a girl gaming webzine called Cerise Magazine whose mission statement calls out the need for a feminist publication:
We are a feminist publication and oppose all forms of oppression and the ways in which that oppression manifests itself in game communities in ways that hurt women, transgender individuals, queer-identified people, people of color, people with disabilities, and other marginalized individuals. We hope that our inclusive philosophy will propagate to help the game industry and culture at large become an environment welcoming to people of all identities.
The site features a monthly issue that has news, reviews, and other content targeted toward girl gaming. Be sure to check out some of JoAnna’s other interviews that includes names like: White Wolf freelancer Jess Hartley, Lady Fireeze of the Guild of Gaming Women and Sara Girard, Marketing Lead for D&D.
