Quiltbag++

NYC queer and/or trans and/or ++ people in tech

Quiltbag? The acronym ‘QUILTBAG’ is like ‘LGBT’, but includes several words not listed there, like queer, intersex, and asexual. What about the ++? In some programming languages, using two plus signs is a shortcut for adding 1 to a number. We are using it here because even an acronym as robust as QUILTBAG will invariably leave out some identities, and we want to make clear that our terminology, like our inclusiveness, is not finite, but growing and changing. We are using ++ to signal our interest in making space for queer, trans, and ++ people in tech.

Who we are

We are a group of queer and trans people who work with technology, and we're putting together the kind of queer tech group we want to see in New York City: a friendly, gender-inclusive organization informed by the values of social justice and open source.
