About Liana Kerzner

Love video games? Hate the way they're talked about?  Me too.  That's why I started making videos.  See what Patreon has already helped fund on my YouTube channel!  We deal with some challenging subjects together, but we do it as a dialogue, and we do it with respect. This Patreon is now my primary source of income, as well as the most reliable, because YouTube is great for exposure, but it's terrible for monetization.

Patrons get advanced access, exclusive videos, and even get to help shape projects.  It's a really good community as well as being a source of funding!

On top of the video content, Patreon support helps me develop theoretical frameworks to analyze video games.  These include the "Triangle of Agency", which deals with the interplay of developer agency, player agency, and character agency in video games, and the "Performative Gamer Gaze" which recognizes that interactions with video game playable characters are both an act of looking (as per Lacanian gaze theory) and an act of performance (As per Judith Butler's theories).  To cut through the jargon, those who identify as gamers interact with games in a way that is different than non-gamers or casual gamers. 

I also call my approach to "women in games" analysis "Mosaic feminism".  Mosaic feminism is my own system that is a response to the weaknesses of intersectionalism.  

Your Patreon support now also funds Lady Bits!  The Kickstarter-funded series about women in video games!

Patreon sponsorship has funded the highly successful and influential Gamers Guide To Feminism. Partially funded the even more successful Lady Bits series, and will help fund BOSSFIGHT, my upcoming series about video game myths.



Other content that Patreon has funded:

NEW: Twitch!  Tuesday 6PM Eastern, Thursday 1PM Eastern, with an emphasis on retro, indie, and just plain odd video games!

Dialogue Options: long form Skype interviews with interesting personalities related to gaming.  Currently on hiatus until I can find a new guest booker. 
Party Chatter: discussions with regular gamers about gaming.

Note: we will do our best to make sure that donations do not come from companies we are covering.  However, we may accept donations from individuals from companies for specific initiatives.  All relevant corporate compensation will be appropriately disclosed.
Goals
$1,210 of $2,000 per month
When I reach this goal, I'll start doing exclusive content for patrons about game design and media production principles.
