About Represent Me

Represent Me (registered as Queerly Represent Me) is a not-for-profit consultation and research organisation. We work with companies to consult on their games, events, and studio culture, and use proceeds from these contracts to provide free resources and services to the wider community, to give voice to marginalised developers, and support the creation of diverse content.

We aim to help individuals familarise themselves with and access more texts that represent them, and to help aspiring marginalised developers find the confidence to pursue their careers. We also hope to provide allies with resources and support to make the world a better place for marginalised people. Ongoing discussion around representation and diversity is inevitable—and vital—and Represent Me seeks to be a key voice within this conversation.


 
Your money will be supporting our mission to represent, educate, and elevate. We are working on a number of projects that we use to achieve those goals: 

We have conducted multiple audience surveys since we were founded in May 2016, and we are analysing the data from those surveys so we can publish articles and papers discussing the way audiences respond to diverse content.

We attend conferences and conventions around Australia and, with further support, will be attending international events to discuss our ongoing work and research. We also publish articles based on our talks, as well as guides for how to better engage with diversity.

We host Jess' Queer Games Journey where Jess Zammit discusses lesser known games that she has played while researching queer content.

We publish interviews in an interview series with marginalised folks working in the games industry. We are using this information to gain a better understanding of the ways identity can affect the work of marginalised devs, and the roadblocks that might be preventing them from excelling in the games industry.

We have additional outreach programs and events, which we hope will connect the public to diversity and games.

We rely heavily on our community and your support—through connecting with us, sharing us with your networks, and ensuring we can pay our bills—makes a world of difference.


 
Your Patreon support will help us to continue producing all of the resources, research, and initiatives listed above.

Our primary aim with this Patreon is to make the money required to pay our staff and contributors for their work. So many hours go into making Represent Me what it is (and ensuring that all of the resources we provide are free to access for the public), and your Patreon support is what keeps us going.

If you can afford to donate, that is greatly appreciated! If you cannot, there are other ways you can support us. Check out our tips here.
