#dctech now has a meetup for LGBTQIA+ folks

#dctech now has a meetup for LGBTQIA+ folks | PinkieB.com | Gay and Lesbian Life | Scoop.it
Meet Pride & Tech DC, founded by PBS developer Lindsey Dragun. Its next event is on Nov. 15.
Matt Skallerud's insight:

A new LGBTQIA+ tech meetup called Pride & Tech DC plans to exclude straight allies from certain meetings, but according to meetup founder Lindsey Dragun, that might actually help the group become more inclusive. While Lesbians Who Tech hosts sporadic meetups and General Assembly sponsored an LGBTQA happy hour last month, the 31-year-old Dragun said that #dctech lacks a group that intentionally creates an inclusive space for all LGBTQA+ individuals. Her hope is that Pride & Tech can provide that space.

‘Lesbians Who Tech’ Make Their Mark At Gay Pride Tel Aviv, Embracing Diversity And All Things High-Tech And LGBT

‘Lesbians Who Tech’ Make Their Mark At Gay Pride Tel Aviv, Embracing Diversity And All Things High-Tech And LGBT | PinkieB.com | Gay and Lesbian Life | Scoop.it
For one week in June, Israel’s second city drums to a different beat: A mass of bronzed and oiled bodies descend on beachside bars and cafes festooned with rainbow flags, downing lunchtime mojitos to a soundtrack of pumping techno. This is Tel Aviv Gay Pride, the culmination of which is a traffic-stopping parade Friday that attracts some 200,000 people from around the world. Despite the predominance of muscled men on a rolling catwalk of ever smaller swim shorts, “Women in the Community” is the 2016 theme, and behind the scenes, it’s LGBT women who are really shaking things up.
Matt Skallerud's insight:

Lesbians Who Tech combines two distinct yet quintessential facets of Tel Aviv life: a vibrant LGBT scene (voted the No. 1 gay city in a 2012 poll) and, with more high-tech startups per capita than any other country in the world, an established tech ecosystem. The pithily named organization “for queer women [working] in or around tech,” which started in a San Francisco bar three years ago, has since swelled to more than 16,000 global members in 35 cities. American founder Leanne Pittsford caught the industry’s attention with events such as #BringALesbianToWorkDay, and the group found its new eastern Mediterranean home in December. Six months later, LWT was holding its first Tel Aviv tech summit, bringing together lesbian women for a series of networking events and presentations in Google’s Tel Aviv offices.
