“Intersections of Queerness and the Internet” is an anonymous, experimental publication project looking at the importance of the internet and internet culture for the LGBTQ+ community, collected through various experiences and artifacts, and bound by hand with a variation of the kettle-stitch.
Research, Publication, Bookbinding
As a Millennial growing up with technology, I have experienced plenty of highs and lows with regard to the internet. As a queer person, however, I find myself ultimately owing my coming-out experience to the internet. I was curious if this was something shared across my generation in the LGBTQ+ community. Thus, the foundation for my publication.
I utilized the anonymous nature of Reddit to collect most of my digital artifacts. I posted requests similar to this in various queer subreddits, while remaining as transparent as possible. All of my findings are tagged by the timestamp I received them, a nod to the digital nature of this research.
