It’s no secret that it’s difficult to be a woman in the gaming industry; it’s become a meta circle jerk to even talk about sexism and how it applies to the culture.
Thumbstick Mafia is a partial solution; yes, things have gotten better but we’ve got a long ways to go – in the mean time, what are we going to do about it? We envision TM as a support system and network for black and woc. that mainly focuses on the subculture of gaming as it applies to our intersection of black and minority womanhood. We want to build a space that ensures we can actively participate and grow together.
