After years of crappy representation I just wanna publish something filled with queer hacking & sex & "fuck your conservative sensibilities"

Our world is shaped by the voices that we hear. Unfortunately, the stories we need to hear the most are often the ones that end up being drowned out.

Queer Hacking is a publishing project aimed at telling the stories of queer women, men & non-binary persons who are hacking the world.

We want to hear real stories about queer people and queer projects.

Perhaps you are building queer friendly sex toys or creating tools to empower sex workers. Maybe you are developing new ways for people to express their gender or sexuality, or simply hacking your way around the system.

In particular we are really interested in the stories & technical projects of queer women & non-binary people.

Whatever your story, if you can imagine it fitting within "Queer Hacking" we want to hear it.
