The Planeswalkers for Diversity stream team is currently streaming sporadically at www.twitch.tv/mtgdiversity and working towards a regular schedule. Watch this space for updates.
What is the purpose of the P4D stream? Glad you asked! Planeswalkers for Diversity is all about improving the atmosphere of spaces for playing Magic, particularly for LGBT folk, women, people of colour, and anyone who currently runs the risk of discrimination (intentional or not) when they go to play Magic. How does playing online affect actual real spaces and what does the P4D stream have to do with this? First, we will occasionally stream a discussion topic with Magic simply being played in the background, or a discussion panel where the focus is the discussion. More often, we are non-pros like you playing some Magic online and looking to offer some insights on how to improve at Magic itself. We often have pros or experienced streamers join us to provide constructive criticism and allow you a chance to learn from our mistakes. Sometimes we chat about issues relating to diversity and gaming in between matches.

Playing Magic for over a century. Literally. More recently an L1 judge. Got involved in p4d to selfishly reduce old-player stigma. Quickly realized women, LGBTQ folk, people of colour, those with disabilities, & new players of all kinds could benefit if more people in the Magic community were to practice Wheaton’s Law.

Our stream team Captain is originally from a small town in northern Michigan, Brogan moved to Boston and has never been happier because it allowed her to embrace board games, tabletops, video games, LARPs, and especially Magic. Time’s up, let’s do this.
