Out in Tech New York | We're Tech-nically Dating

 

The rise of U.S. dating apps has fundamentally altered how members of the LGBTQ community find partners and connect to one another. In fact, nearly two-thirds of gay and lesbian couples in the U.S. met online.

This V-Day, Out in Tech will host a panel discussion with the brains behind some of these apps to discuss their design, how they target various pockets of our community, as well as their implications for privacy and inclusion.

The panel will be moderated by Les Fabian Brathwaite, Senior Editor at Out Magazine.

Panelists will include:
Ollie Locke, co-founder of Chappy
Robyn Exton, founder of Her
Jane Reynolds, Senior Editor of OKCupid
Ari Waldman, Director of Innovation Center for Law & Technology at New York Law School
