[Event - TODAY, 2pm UTC] NEAR COMMUNITY TALKS: Queer plurality within the digital realm (session #1)

Online Event Location: Zoom

A series of intersectional focus groups to talk about the experiences of the LGBTQIAP+ community in the digital realm. The sessions will take place in the Community Talks, online, and open to everyone inside the NEAR Ecosystem.

We will discuss different aspects of prejudice and exclusion against the LGBTQIAP+ community with special emphasis on digital interactions. The goal is to promote an injection of otherness, showcase of difference and a reality check. Also it is expected to sensibilize users and moderators about the sensitivity of talking about queer issues in public forums.
