How diverse is your Hobby Shop
 
Well this is me being curious as I am the only black guy that plays at my hobbyshop or in the world, my hobbyshop is a little bit diverse,but I am pondering how diverse is your guys hobbyshop.

There's a black guy who plays WHFB at the FLGS I frequent. Actually the majority of gamers there play fantasy, but I digress; there are asian gamers, hispanic gamers, and a bunch of white guys. It might be, because we have a university and 3 colleges in town.

Zero Black/Asian/Whatever Guys/Girls at mine. Unfortunately its completely White Guys/Girls.
That being said: There are only two Girls at mine, Me being one of them.

when you asked how diverse is your shop? i was expecting "does it sell more than just GW stock" not a discussion on race statistics lol, Generally this hobby is enjoyed by white middle class males aged 12 to adult. I have only ever known 1 black family play (they used to pay me to paint for them) and i have only ever known 1 female player and a couple that would paint the models.
That said my customers come from all over the globe, granted the vast majority come from white English speaking countries but i do get some from very unexpected locations (Including a Submarine) like Brazil,japan and Russia and a few from south africa.

I was expecting more of a 'What games are played at your GW' then a race thing too.

That said, even though we have zero people who aren't white, we have women, and we have a couple of gays and lesbians too.


Gameswise... its a pretty even split of 40k and fantasy players... we have ziltch people interested in, or who play LoTR.

I won't touch on the whole 'race' vibe going on here, but I have 5/6 GW/LGS's within an hour of me..the closest one doesn't play 40K at all as they think it's an unsatisfying game on many levels. They are massive Fantasy gamers though and 2/3 of them are in the top 10 in Aus Tourney-wise. That said, they have even moved on from that since the new Edition hit and now play either FoW or Warmachine...2 games I can't/won't get into.

mine is pretty diverse, we got some hispanics and a couple black guys too, but they play magic the gathering not warhammer. (my store isnt a true GW store)

Are Lesbians not Women? Are Gays not men? Why have you seperated the two?
Quite distinctly too. Was it necessary to seperate them when:
'We have Zero people who aren't white and we have a few Women'
Would have sufficed.

Not being an Asshole or anything but the seperation is strange to say the least.

the threads about diversity so maybe he thought it was worth mentioning, i would have thought it would be good to have your sexuality represented.I didnt read it as the gay people were not of a certain sex, just that he was pointing out the diversity in his club
