S.T.O.P. x RadTech: Protect Trans Kids From Digital Surveillance
From the Organizers:
In this session, we’ll examine the digital surveillance of transgender, gender non-conforming, intersex, and queer (TGNCIQ) youth, especially in light of the transphobic legislation accelerating at the state level across the country. What digital technologies may be used to criminalize TGNCIQ youth seeking gender-affirming care and their supportive parents? What strategies can TGNCIQ youth use to stay safe from policing on the internet?
