Urbance is a proposed animated television project featuring black characters in an "electro hip-hop" environment inspired by comic books.

Gamergate funding Edit

On November 3, 2014, the Urbance project's Kickstarter fundraiser was $54,000 short with three days remaining. Art blogger Taliamirai complained that that "White LGBTQ Tumblr" had destroyed the project by falsely describing it as racist and sexist because a proposed outline of its pilot episode did not include any transsexual characters.

On November 4, a member of 8chan's Gamergate discussion board noticed Taliamirai's post and called for "Pissing off more SJWs" by donating to the project. The Kickstarter was fully funded within four hours.
