Although my conversation with gamer and activist Tanya DePass was initially recorded at the beginning of 2021 on THEBLERDGURL LIVE, our discussion around diversity in gaming and enduring the harassment that goes with it is still ongoing timely.
DePass is the founder and Director of I Need Diverse Games, a not-for-profit organization based in Chicago, Illinois, dedicated to better diversification of all aspects of gaming. A partnered Twitch variety broadcaster, DePass, (her online persona is cypheroftyr) often speaks on issues of diversity, feminism, race, intersectionality & other topics at conventions. DePass was also named part of The Game Awards Future Class 2020 and was one of Kotaku’s Gamers of the Year 2020.
