We will envisage a queer dating app utopia. One where the app feels secure and respectful of its user; one where the user's privacy, autonomy, and consent have been considered, taking out the physical and digital risks. Despite being very far from this utopia, we will show that there are methods we as users and apps as the providers can take to reduce the risks of online dating.
The session will be setout go in these stages:
- Drawing up of ideal app from the participant perspective.
- Show new and old cases of harms that have been encountered by queer folx from different countries.
- Redefine what an ideal app should be based on these contexts.
This is a Learning Forum session and part of the Queering MozFest experience.
