This issue is about the intersections of technology, queer identities and politics. We explore transitioning in the age of Facebook, chronicle over fifty years of gay tech, and critique where existing women in tech efforts are failing. We cover microaggressions against black queer people in the community, talk to the founder of Lesbians Who Tech, and think critically about the use of queer tech in the South. Plus, a Q&A on a new cyberworld for LGBTQA youth, an interview with a San Francisco activist focusing on class mobility, and what abusive work environments are like when you’ve experienced abuse in the past.
