Queer Gamers Berlin

Every 4th Saturday from 14:00 to 17:00

Age 18 and above

Play and discuss videogames in a warm and safe atmosphere with other like-minded people from the LGBTIQA+ community in Berlin!

Come play and discuss videogames with people from the community and meet new friends with similar interest. Our main goal is to work towards a #SaferSpace for all of us, queer gamers, and for this we will need your help. If you are interested and you are wondering if this group is for you, take a look at our code of conduct below, at the end of the page, where you will find the answer.
For the same reason, and to make sure we can put the attention in creating a good atmosphere, we will limit the event to 30 people. Please let us know if you would like to attend.

The main group event will take place in English, but if English is not your preferred language and you would rather speak German, worry not! Let us know and we will find a way to make the event easier for you!

Our group is hosted in collaboration by two of Berlin’s oldest LGBTQIA+ associations:
Sonntags-Club e. V. in Greifenhagener Straße 28, 10437 Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg and AHA-Berlin e. V. (Allgemeine Homosexuelle Arbeitsgemeinschaft) in Monumentenstraße 13, 10829 Berlin-Schöneberg. Our events will take place in one of the two associations’ spaces: check out the event announcements to know the location of each meetup!

Code of Conduct

1. #Safer space: We can’t promise a completely safe space, which is why we want to create an atmosphere where you can feel comfortable enough to speak up when there’s conflict. In addition, we ask everyone to be mindful of those around you. The goal is to be a collective awareness team. Of course we (the organisers) are the main contact if there’s an incident and will try to solve them. If it’s desired, we can speak about incidents in the/as a group.

Examples of discrimination: Racist and/or xenophobic remarks, no respect for pronouns, sexist behaviour, classist comments, ableism (discrimination against people with). Discrimination can be expressed in many ways, like in language, through micro-aggressions, willful ignorance.

We must learn from these incidents. Learning is not possible without patience, though. We won’t stand for repeated behaviour.

1.1. Triggers: Be mindful that certain actions and/or topics can be triggering for others, both physically (i.e.: volume, flashing screens) and mentally (i.e.: topics such as death, illness, #). If you need a quiet room, we can provide it to you.

2. Respectful handling of materials: The organisers as well as participants bring consoles and controllers. Be considerate when using the provided materials, and return them at the end of the event. If you are unsure where the materials belong, please ask us.

3. Give everyone an opportunity to play: We understand the excitement of gaming, but please remember to give everyone a chance to play at the consoles.

4. Thoughtfulness: We ask you to be considerate and respectful of your surroundings so that the event can be a comfortable one for all participants. As discussed in talking point 1, our goal for the group is to be mindful of one another and speak up on interpersonal situations/conflicts to solve them.

5. The event is for ages +18. (With the exception of certain events open for all ages. More info on the group’s website.)

6. Limited space: For each event we will accept around 30 people. Our priority will always be to create a safe space for the LGBTQIA+ community. We welcome people who might not belong to the community to learn and educate themselves. If our capacity of 30 is reached and more people part of the community want to join, we ask our allies to be considerate and remember for whom this event is for

7. Respect the associations’ respective code of conducts: We hold our events at Sonntags-Club and AHA, which have their own code of conducts, please respect these. You can find them at the entrance.

We are open and happy for any improvements and additions to our code of conduct!
