This discussion covers the exploration of positive role models and characters in video game platforms that are represented as culturally diverse and important to people of color and other underrepresented groups. We seek to celebrate heroes that are seen as more than minor or supportive roles.

In mainstream gaming and other mediums, there is a trend for characters of diverse backgrounds to often be cast as a villain, or a hero of questionable morals, or are stuck in just one stereotype. We hope to enlighten and celebrate the fact that its not just football, basketball, or grand theft based games where we can find these characters.

We wish to show that there are positive characters out there and want to help build a trend of celebrating and promoting heroes of diverse backgrounds that can be admired and relatable by a greater community.
