Castro Theater and Castro Street at dusk. San Francisco, California, USA

There’s a conference for queer women in tech and it looks awesome

 

Are you a woman? Queer?  Do you work in tech? If so, I hope you’re able to go to the Lesbians Who Tech (LWT) summit that is taking place in San Francisco, CA February 28 to March 2nd. This conference will the first held by the Lesbian Who Tech group, which calls itself  “a community of queer women in or around tech (and the people who love them).” Looking around a room and feeling like the only one from your community can be really rough. Lesbians Who Tech exists to combat the negative effects of that type of isolation and now there’s a chance to connect with other women from all over the world.

Lori, Jos, and student panelist at a speaking event.

Wanna hang out?

“I loved that the speakers were down to earth and were easy for others to relate to. I have had nothing but rave reviews from those who were in attendance.

When I stay out too late with feminists at the Makers red carpet premiere…

…and I can barely blog, but I sure can rock some sunnies.

As Steinem said in conclusion to her speech at the screening quoting Paula Gunn Allen, “The root of oppression is the loss of memory.

The event and screening was ...
