Gamers Against Bigotry
Bigotry isn’t part of gaming culture, and it never has been; it’s just unfounded hatred, masked by anonymity
Gamers Against Bigotry was created with one purpose in mind: to create a gaming community that is welcoming to gamers of all identities.
Over 20,000 people in over 100 countries signed the GAB Pledge declaring they wouldn't use bigoted language in gaming, and dozens of volunteers worked together to create articles, tables at conferences, and speak on panels about inclusion in gaming.
Because gaming is awesome. And online multiplayer gaming is more awesome. But it sucks that gamers have to choose to not play online, or to deal with a relentless barrage of identity-based hate slung their way if they do log in.
GAB was founded by Sam Killermann, who served as Executive Director until 2013 when he passed the reins.
