Participants assume the roles of users who, for various reasons, have a name or gender inconsistent with official records, private, and public systems. They may be changing their name because of adoption, divorce, gender recognition, or personal safety (escaping abusive situations). In this framework, we'll explore how systems can fail, betray, and endanger these users, and how to design systems that center the idea that names are not-permanent.

This workshop is based on a 2015 talk at OSB http://opensourcebridge.org/sessions/1669, https://youtu.be/WJa_taQh0q8
