New Year, New Trans Rights Bundle!

Games submitted to this jam will be collected into a charity bundle for Project Rainbow, West Virginia's only LGBTQ+ shelter. The bundle will be priced at $5 and will run for approximately one month, beginning in late March. No profits from this bundle will be shared between game designers, or sent to myself as the organizer.

Project Rainbow is a nonprofit organization based in Monongalia County, West Virginia. Since its inception, the project has been curated to serve unsheltered LGBTQ+ individuals to help them better navigate the housing system safely and compassionately. Project Rainbow has opened The Rainbow House in an effort to serve this community and meet this goal. Although the shelter is our community's most urgent and immediate need, Project Rainbow recognizes that there is far more work to be done. We serve as advocates for the individuals we serve, and the Appalachian LGBTQ+ community as a whole. We work closely with partners in the housing system, health and mental health care systems to not only find solutions for our guests but to make these systems themselves more accessible for our target population.

I (Rue, the organizer) and my co-founder and executive assistant, Rina, have previously run the TTRPGs for Trans Rights in Texas and TTRPGs for Trans Rights in Florida bundles.

Games can be new, existing, or works in progress. They can be paid games or free games- we want to bring together as much of the community as possible! The only rule is that games cannot be transphobic, homophobic, racist, ableist, or bigoted in any other way. 

TTRPGs, Board Games, Zines, digital tools for games, and more are welcome! If you have any questions, feel free to ask me!

If you  are a larger publisher who uses their own platform to distribute games, please email rue@ilananight.space or DM me on twitter if you would like to participate in the bundle. We're happy to work with you to figure out a method for you to be a part of this!
