About UsThe Border House is a blog for gamers. It's a blog for those who are feminist, queer, disabled, people of color, transgender, poor, gay, lesbian, and others who belong to marginalized groups, as well as allies. Our goal is to bring thoughtful analysis to gaming with a feminist viewpoint and up-to-date news on games, virtual worlds, and social media.

New Media Rights Fundraiser
New Media Rights is currently running an Indiegogo campaign to fund "season two" of their Legal Assistance for Game Developers video series, which will include more videos about legal issues relevant to game developers as well as interviews with people in the game industry. NMR is a non-profit that provides free legal services to independent game developers, film makers, and other creators. In the past, they have assisted Anita Sarkeesian of Feminist Frequency when two of her videos were wrongfully taken down from YouTube, for example. You can watch season one of the LAGD series on YouTube and read more about New Media Rights and their goals at their Indiegogo page.
