  1. 1. ONLINE PLATFORMS & MINORITY EXPRESSION SXSW INTERACTIVE 2016 - PROPOSAL ANDREA HACKL
  2. 2. ABOUT THE PROPOSED PANEL In the digital public sphere, the policy and technological designs of online platforms play a significant role for users’ ability to speak freely and connect with others (Balkin, 2009; DeNardis & Hackl, 2015). Especially for minority groups like LGBT people, political activists and abuse victims, censorship and a move away from anonymous speech can represent a challenge not only to individual privacy, but also to their ability to participate in political change-making. Bringing together a panel of political activists and policy experts, the panel discusses how online platforms and their policy and technological designs account for the needs of vulnerable groups and foster or hinder community building and political change-making. Balkin, J. M. (2009). The future of free expression in a digital age. Pepperdine Law Review, 36(2), 427-444. DeNardis, L., & Hackl, A. M. (2015). Internet governance by social media platforms. Telecommunications Policy.
  3. 3. QUESTIONS ADDRESSED • What role do the policy and technological designs of online platforms play in fostering and constraining minority expression and community building? • What role can online users play in challenging these online platforms to foster minority expression and community building? • What are potential changes to policy and technological designs that could help foster minority expression and community building online?
  4. 4. SPEAKER I Christopher Wood Currently, Mr. Wood serves as the LGBT Technology Partnership & Institute's Executive Director. Most recently, Mr. Wood has served as a consultant to national LGBT organizations on various projects including transgender economic development programs. In this capacity, Mr. Wood provided project planning and strategic guidance to groups developing programs around jobs, legal programs, intake processes, localized statistics and employer/employee training opportunities. Prior to that, Mr. Wood worked at Discovery Communications creating social media and strategic marketing campaigns directed toward rural and LGBT communities. As part of his strategic campaigns, he was responsible for directing outreach programs at various LGBT Pride festivals across the country. Mr. Wood’s leadership, passion for technology and entrepreneurial appetite has instinctively led him to co-found LGBT Technology Partnership & Institute.

  5. 5. SPEAKER II Photo credit: Sister Roma Sister Roma 2015 marks Sister Roma’s 28th year as one of the most continuously active, outspoken and highly visible members of the infamous Sisters Of Perpetual Indulgence. Located in San Francisco, Roma is recognized around the globe as an activist, fundraiser, public speaker, hostess/Master of Ceremonies, columnist, talk show host, and an arguable gay icon. Most recently Roma gained international attention as the originator of the #MyNameIs campaign in protest of Facebook's Real Name Policy. Along with a handful of other passionate San Francisco drag queens and kings, members of the trans community, domestic abuse survivors, burlesque performer and key politicos, Roma met with Facebook to address "fake" name reporting affecting marginalized members of the Facebook community. Roma and the #MyNameIs Coalition continue to protest Facebook's policing of online identity and work to ensure that everyone has the right to self-identify.
