Random Encounter 254 – Asexual Representation in RPGs

Random Encounter 254 Asexual Characters in RPGs

On this episode of Random Encounter, we’re talking about asexual representation in video games.

A few weeks ago, RPGFan published a feature by our own Caitlin Argyros, focusing on asexual characters in RPGs. Spoiler alert: it’s a pretty short list. Though queer representation has been on the rise over the last decade, the aspec community still struggles to be seen and heard in all forms of media, including gaming. This week, Jono and Caitlin discuss various types of representation in video games, the nature of roleplaying as someone who doesn’t experience sexual or romantic attraction, and what the future might hold for characters on the asexual and aromantic spectrums.

Featuring: Jono Logan, Caitlin Argyros; Edited by Jono Logan
