Today's focus is the Digital Divide for ***, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and *** People in this special week-long examination of Bridging the Digital Divides. We look forward to your questions and comments on this focus as well as any other topics related to the digital divides.
Co-hosts for today are:
* Will Doherty, email@example.com
Executive Director, Online Policy Group
( http://www.onlinepolicy.org/ )
* Gwen Smith, firstname.lastname@example.org. of
Female to Male International ( http://www.ftmi.org/ ) and
Gender.Org ( http://www.gender.org/ )
Because ***, gay, bisexual, transgender, and ***
(LGBTQ) people usually live spread out among families and
communities that often do not share the same sexual
orientation or gender identity, the Internet has proven
a particularly important way of obtaining information,
seeking support, and building community.
* How does the digital divide impact LGBTQ people in ways
that are similar to and different from other aspects of
the digital divide? How do LGBTQ communities face
discrimination online from service providers who try to
censor their content or identity? How does Internet
blocking software disproportionately block LGBTQ
content, especially in schools and libraries?
