LGBTQ in Technology

The LGBTQ in Technology Slack is a space for LGBTQ people in technology to chat and support each other. We strive to keep it safe, positive, and confidential.

How do I join?

The Slack is invitation-only, but invitations are freely granted. You can request one from any existing member or by filling out this form:

Who’s invited?

Anybody who identifies as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, and those questioning whether they fit into those or any of the many other sub-genres of people who are not generally considered both “straight” and cis. Friends and allies: we appreciate your support, but this space is for us.

I want to bring a friend!

Once you’re in the group, just message an admin with the email address you wish to invite, like so: /admin Would you invite [[friend’s email here]]?


Slack chat spaces are divided into rooms called “channels”, and we have a few. There are two you’ll be in by default:

  • #announcements: occasional announcements
  • #chat: random chat

All rooms are opt-in except announcements, which is why it is kept low-volume.

What are the rules?

We have a simple and uncontroversial Code of Conduct.

TL;DR: be nice, and what happens inside generally stays there unless someone specifically says otherwise.

If you're under 18, please let the admins know so we can keep an eye out for you.
