Talk Title and Description:
Transgender Representation in the Metaverse
My hope is that this presentation can serve as an invitation for us all to understand and appreciate that every human on earth is looking for the same things – to feel accepted and respected as our authentic selves. Representation and safety need to be a top priority in the metaverse for all people. As a Transgender person who found my community and support in the late 1990s on message boards and now as an experiential studio business owner developing in the Metaverse, I will share my experience and insights for a more equitable future.
