Intermediate - Advanced Level
In this class, LGBTQ+ Dungeons and Dragons players will play the game over live video chat. Each meeting, a youth identified and arranged with the instructor beforehand will serve as Dungeon Master (providing the backstory, props, and "hosting" the game play) and the instructor will assist with game flow and interpersonal interactions. Stories will at times be specifically LGBTQ-focused and at all times game play and interaction will be very much centered on affirming LGBTQ youth. FYI: If...
This class is taught in English.
I am a queer-identified clinician and educator with 20+ years experience working with youth in many contexts.
Homework OfferedNo formal homework is assigned. Players often spend time outside of class developing their characters' backstories, creating character or setting artwork, etc.

Our social environment is neurodiversity affirming, learners tend to be neurodivergent, and we aim to be open and responsive to any stated or apparent needs.
Basic familiarity with the game is necessary such as via YouTube or watching others play. Our game is low-key and friendly, and we help out those who do not have all of the rules memorized.
Players can bring dice or other game items of their choosing. For those who do not have these at home, there are other ways to make game play work. (Google has a built-in dice roller: Try typing in "roll a D20" to see this in action). Many players use the D&D Beyond website to roll dice and keep track of character sheets. The site is free but does require a login and minimal sharing of personal information (and requires the parent to sign up and supervise for learners under 13) so this is up to each family's discretion.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
This is a fantasy role-playing game. Themes may include violence, romance, grief, loss, criminal activity, general references to substances, and so forth. The instructor does intend to keep the space a safe space for all marginalized individuals and will ensure that oppression is not glorified. Players who find game interactions upsetting will be given space to discuss this. We may use third-party tools such as D&D Beyond or Heroforge, which require users to create an account (or parents to create one and supervise if users are under 13). It is possible to participate in the class without using any external websites, but this requires players to be familiar with manually filling out character sheets and able to do this during the meetings independently, and ideally having a way to either screen-share a scan or a camera that works for clearly displaying a printed out sheet.
