Our work


LGBT Tech works to conduct research about LGBTQ+ individuals' adoption, use, trends, challenges and benefits around technology. Our research in combination with others conducting research about LGBTQ+ communities and technology is used to inform our education, resources and programs.

LGBT Tech signs open letter against UK anti-encryption campaign

Operation: Safe Escape and LGBT Tech stress the vital importance of encrypted communications for victims of domestic abuse and for LGBTQ+ people in countries where they face harassment, victimization and even the threat of execution. Far from making them safer, denying at-risk people a confidential lifeline puts them at greater and sometimes mortal risk.

Policy Education

With a focus in the United States, LGBT Tech works at the national, state, and grassroots level on programs and policy informed by research.


Recognizing the need to better understand the role of technology in LGBTQ+ lives, LGBT Tech starts with research to create important resources for the LGBTQ+ community and allies.

Our work isn't all educational or academic. The work we do through our PowerOn and PATHS programs help inspire and create tangible change for LGBTQ+ individuals and communities.

PowerOn is a first-of-a-kind program that distributes technology to homeless, isolated, and disadvantaged LGBTQ+ individuals across the country through our network of LGBTQ+ grantee organizations. 


PATHS is a program to inspire and motivate LGBTQ+ youth and young adults interested in careers in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) fields through storytelling by current LGBTQ+ STEAM professionals.
