Each year, across the festival weekend, luminaries from across the internet health movement discuss the most prevalent and current issues at the intersection of technology and society. Past speakers have hailed from Kenya, France, India, Bahrain, the U.S., the UK, and beyond.
They are influential activists, hackers, engineers, journalists, and lawyers. The programming aims to educate and inspire the audience, so they leave the festival with fresh ideas for advocacy campaigns, policies, and software.
Technology further codifies biases and categorizes personhood, not simply a reflection of the society that creates it but possibly an imperfect and flawed mirror of it. That has resulted in software and AI systems that are at odds with fluidity, that endanger the privacy and security of the LGBTQIA+ community, and often infer heteronormative assumptions and forces binary gender classifications. How does the queer community change this technology landscape? And what does it mean to queer the landscape, coopt these systems, and create safe, online spaces? And accordingly, how has technology made a global LGBTQIA+ movement possible?
