Blog Posts

My writing has largely focused on LGBTQ rights issues and the intersections of tech policy and human rights. You can find examples of my writing on the Ranking Digital Rights corporate accountability project blog as well as the LGBT Technology Partnership and Institute website.

I have a strong interest in the history of the LGBTQ rights movement and had the opportunity to write two contributions for the encyclopedia project Proud Heritage. My entries focus on the Proposition 8 movement in California as well as LGBTQ rights in Massachusetts.
