How do digital security and privacy interact with various LGBTQ plus communities and how do those communities view and interact with digital systems in the connected world? There is no single answer to this question as it depends greatly on the demographics of what makes up a community, including age, economic status, and cultural background. The rules of interaction in digital spaces, and the expectations that people can have about both digital security are defined by those who create and maintain the platforms that people use to interact every day, whether that’s on social media, or the now ubiquitous app culture. The intersection of digital security and privacy with LGBTQ plus communities is the topic of this talk, which will show how the systems we build affect the members of the communities that use these systems.
