Queer Privacy: Essays From The Margins Of Society

3.65  ·  Rating details ·  26 ratings  ·  8 reviews
Queer Privacy is a collection of essays about community, family, coming out, dating, domestic violence, activism, sex work and suicide.

We will talk about problems, we won't always have solutions, and not all the stories have happy endings.

After all, this is real life and we are building it together - one step at a time.

Essential reading for anyone building software, especially privacy tech. Wish the book had been far longer and contained more essays. We could all benefit from more stories, articles, and books on intersectional privacy.

Inspired by this book, I've tried to compile a short list of introductory "privacy x gender"resources here. Kudos to Sarah Jamie Lewis for compiling these important essays, and pricing the book accessibly.

more like a 3.5, because the quality of the essays were extremely varied. the ones i found particularly interesting/informative were:
- what's in a name? by kath rella
- privacy on the margins by morgan potts
- the myth of the anonymous troll by violet hargrave

Some very good essays, others that are equally good but could benefit from some improvements on readability. Overall, a good read.

Fantastic topic but unfortunately really mixed quality of the writing. Found Norman Shamas and Violet Hargrave's essays to be the best of the bunch.

Important stories, but quite a short read. I also wish there had been more and I found myself wanting some thoughtful reflection on how we could do better to go with.
