📅 WHEN - April 13th 2022
⏱️ All-day long 10:00-22:00 🕺 After party @ Shpagat 22:00-02:00
We are a group of tech enthusiastic queer women. We all agree that it's time to improve some areas for LGBTQ+ women by using our creative ideas, cooperation, and of course.. technology.
We joined forces with the TLV LGBTQ+ center to organize a queer women's Hackathon! Our event will focus on LGBTQ+ needs in 4 aspects:
- Health - Queer people are statistically getting less medical treatment than they need. Our challenge is to make health care more accessible for queer people and to raise awareness among queer people about their medical rights, common medical issues, and LBTQ friendly possibilities of medical care.
- Safety - In social media, on the streets, or at our new workplace, we as LGBTQ+ people, feel unsafe from time to time. Our challenge is to make social and public spaces safer for queer people.
- Community - There are so many queer people around us. Our challenge is to... Create an actual, living, and kicking community! A proactive one. Driving our community to take action is a data challenge as well as a security one.
- Legal - We are in the middle of a cultural revolution about the status of the LGBTQ+ community in society. Generations before ours had to fight with their bare hands for us to be able to invite you all to this Dykeathon event. It’s Our generation's challenge to translate this status into legal precedents and secure the future of the next generations.
What does it have to do with you?
