// LGBTQ Social Media Safety — Strategies for Advocacy & Activism (Jenni Olson/JenniOlson)
Abstract: Everyone deserves to feel safe on social media. LGBTQ people are disproportionately targeted with hate and harassment on social media — acts which have very real offline impacts and harms. We are also vulnerable to censorship and disproportionate limitations of free expression related to our identities. As the major platforms continue to fail to adequately protect LGBTQ users from anti-LGBTQ hate, while also continuing to too often suppress our legitimate speech and engagement, what new strategic approaches can we enlist to try to advocate for change? Join GLAAD Senior Director of Social Media Safety, Jenni Olson; Meedan Digital Health Lab Program Manager, Kat Lo; Kairos Program Director of Campaigns, Jelani Drew-Davi for a panel discussion moderated by GLAAD Social Media Safety Program Manager, Leanna Garfield.
