Sistas of the Fog, Dead by Daylight celebrated Black History Month
Monday, February 21, at 7 p.m., Sistas of the Fog were back at it with their second annual Dead by Daylight charity fundraising tournament on Twitch to celebrate Black History month.
This year’s tournament saw the collective’s content creators unite to raise money for the Trans Women of Color Collective in support of its work with the Black Trans community.
Sistas of the Fog see the tournament as a celebration of Black players and hope it will incentivize the broader Dead by Daylight community to join in and learn more about the collective’s year-round efforts to amplify the voices of Black Content Creators and their allies.
“The focus is on the different styles of play and to uplift the Sistas who are playing,” says Lanie Loveee. “Those of us hosting provided commentary and mini-interviews with organizations we collaborate with.”
Milady Confetti and other Black Fog Whisperers also took part in a Twitch Takeover of Dead by Daylight’s Official Twitch channel in celebration of Black History Month.
Like the tournament, Dead by Daylight’s Twitch Takeover aimed to celebrate Black talent and joy while creating an opportunity for Black Influencers to reach new audiences.
“We wanted to find a way to amplify talented Creators in a real and genuine way,” says Dead by Daylight’s Influencer Manager, Mae Morrison. “What better way to show appreciation then to showcase these Creators on our own channel?”
The Sistas of the Fog say the Takeover is a good example of the important efforts that Dead by Daylight is making to make Black Content Creators feel welcome and valued in the community. Safety, however, remains a big concern that always needs to be addressed. “We love the game and it’s important to highlight that Dead by Daylight is doing a lot to protect us in the online community – but more needs to be done,” says Lanie Loveee. “It sucks to be the racial punching bag for some members of the community. There are still serious problems that need to be addressed and it needs to be made clear across all social media channels and platforms that racist remarks will not be accepted,” adds Milady Confetti.
Congratulations to the Sistas of the fog for their amazing initiative in organizing this tournament and raising money for an important cause!
