Social Media Platform Accountability: LGBTQ+ Edition

Mar 12, 2022

10:00am – 11:00am CT

Join internationally acclaimed writer, performer, and media personality ALOK (they/them); GLAAD's senior director of Social Media Safety, Jenni Olson (she/her/TBD); and Media Matters for America senior strategist (and SMSI advisory committee member), Brennan Suen (he/him) for a discussion of GLAAD’s inaugural Social Media Safety Index (SMSI) report — which found Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and TikTok to be unsafe for LGBTQ users. From algorithms and AI to content moderation and data privacy — how can these companies be held accountable, what are the top recommendations from leaders in the field, and how can we all be a part of creating safer spaces for LGBTQ people online?
