Consultation

Queerly Represent Me has a team of consultants who are qualified to discuss diversity and accessibility with you.

We specialise in queer content and the games industry, but we also have a broad range of diverse consultants on our staff (including Indigenous Australians, people with disabilities, neurodivergent people, women, people from low socio-economic backgrounds, and more) who are happy to support you in being more inclusive, no matter the industry you work in.

Testimonials

Chris Gardiner, Narrative Director, Failbetter Games

‘I'd strongly encourage other studios to engage QRM for consultations. Our experience was professional, warm, intensely useful, and intellectually invigorating. QRM went to great lengths to understand the specific context of our game and audience, and tailor their advice accordingly.’

‘I was very nervous about presenting my work at the consultation. I was worried I might have written something offensive and ignorant, and would be judged for it. Especially since some of the outlines intentionally leaned into areas I suspected would be problematic, because I wanted to ensure we could benefit from QRM's expertise on those topics. I needn't have been concerned. The atmosphere was open, supportive, collaborative and friendly. The emphasis was never on saying 'you can't do this,' but always 'how can we make this work?' and 'how can we make this better?' The consultation was both enjoyable and rewarding.’

‘One of the consultants present had such impressive ideas on one character’s story that we’ve hired her to be co-writer on that content.’

Bri Zammit, Producer, Brisbane Powerhouse

'Working with Alayna (on behalf of Queerly Represent Me) on Gayming: A Queer Gaming Experience was an absolute delight. Alayna was passionate and driven from the first meeting right through to the delivery of the event. I had complete confidence in Alayna’s ability to curate a balanced program with representatives from the community and ensure help in promoting the event to our target market. Through Alayna’s highly connected network she was able to present a fantastic showcase of local and interstate talent for the event and her extensive pre-planning made for an extremely smooth delivery. I look forward to working with Alayna in the future!'

James Chew, Writer, Failbetter Games

‘[Queerly Represent Me] provided insightful, practical feedback on pitches and examples of gender and queer representation in the game—before launch.’
