Towards a Safer Internet: Digital security for queer feminist communities in Southeast Asia

29 Oct, 2020
Event Category:
Thu 29 Oct 2020, 7:00 PM — Thu 29 Oct 2020, 9:00 PM UTC+8 Standard Time

This is an online Zoom discussion for the lesbian, bisexual, and queer (LBQ) women in Singapore

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, lesbian, bisexual, and queer (LBQ) women*, and non-binary or gender non-conforming persons in Southeast Asia already heavily relied on the online sphere to connect with each other and organise movements, due to existing challenges in our respective countries. However, as we adapt to the new normal of digital activism, moving almost all of our work and communications online poses new challenges in already complicated contexts.

We are now forced to rethink our strategies for social movements and keeping ourselves and our communities safe and secure. How might we adjust and protect ourselves in these digital spaces? Join us for a conversation with activists from Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore on digital security for queer feminist communities.
