About Liz Ryerson

hi, my name is Liz. you might know me most from the writing about games i do. or maybe you know me from podcasting, or doing music! i'm known for doing work that's a little more unique, different, and uncompromising. i'm a lefty and a lot of my work focuses on expanding critical discourse on videogames. i like to focus my gaze on parts of culture that might not be otherwise taken seriously and broadening perceptions about them. i try as hard as possible to advocate for the underdog and for things that people tend to ignore, refuse to take seriously, and miss. i've talked at many different game conferences and written for several publications primarily about videogames, as well as receiving an award by the videogame criticism website Critical Distance for the blogger of the year back in 2013. i've also written for more general websites like The New Inquiry or Jacobin. and i previously had a podcast called Beyond The Filter featuring conversations with many folks about many different aspects of social media. i'll have a new podcast coming very shortly.

i'm also updating this description here because it was wildly out-of-date.

but anyway: as i'm sure many of you know, a lot of stuff i do and am interested in doing in the future isn't anything that would particularly pay me much of anything. i don't come from money and finding a job is not necessarily easy at all as a trans woman who is known for being slightly more uncompromising with the things i do. nor is it easy to find a large audience doing what i do. so your support on here really subsidizes my ability to keep doing stuff that is new, different, or challenging and expanding people's perceptions of what can be done in niche spaces around videogames or digital media. 

if nothing else, it keeps me going. in the past having support actually got me out of homelessness and carried me through many hard times in my life. it's been instrumental to keeping me able to do stuff i wouldn't have been able to do at all previously. so i'm forever appreciative of that.

anyway, thank you for considering supporting me!
