“I think that social media has really allowed a lot of LGBTQ people to connect with each other a lot more easily than they might have in the past. I know I personally, have made some LGBTQ friends that don’t live close to me, but I still have that connection with them, and I found a lot of self-discovery through the internet which really helped me come to terms with who I am when I might not have been able to in the past.”

“I think it’s good because more people can see the positivity of families coming together when people come out with their family, and I also think it’s bad when something happens and all people see is that someone’s gay. Social media twists things, but I think it’s pretty good. People can come together and meet up and plan things. Just like everything else, it can be a good and bad thing.”

“I feel that technology has impacted the LGBTQI community to be able to have a further reach across the country and the world to be able to give each other more of a safe space to be able to see that we’re all going through the same thing. I feel it’s important for community to connect to each other on relatable topics.”
