In tech we often forget to talk about the people. This sessions will focus on what it means to identify as LGBTQ in the technology community. I want to share my stories and those of so many other LGBTQ members in the tech community to foster a more equal and open environment and to help set an example of how a community like ours can deal with this and lead the way. In the end, all I hope is to impart a simple message on people: be a good human.
