This year, Sarah will tackle: “Queer Privacy & Building Consensual Systems”. The talk is about privacy. “I’m going to tell you stories. These stories belong to real people. People trying to live their lives, find love, find comfort and find happiness in a world that, at best, pretends they don’t exist, and at worst, punishes them for existing. These stories are from people who need privacy and security, but who are failed by our current tool, systems and communities. Not all of these stories have happy endings, but each one shines a light that can show us how to build tools, systems and communities that are more useful, more inclusive and safer for those who are marginalized by society”, states Sarah. will take place on October 17-19, 2017, at Alvisse Parc Hotel in Luxembourg.
