Queer Sex and Technology: Hooking Up From the 1940s to the Present


From phone numbers on bathroom walls to posts on Facebook walls, GLBT people have found creative ways to use technology to facilitate hooking up, whether for an hour or a lifetime. This intergenerational conversation about the devices and tactics queer men and women have used to find sexual and romantic connections is the first installment in The GLBT History Museum's new Making History Now series.

The panel will feature historian Martin Meeker, author of Contacts Desired: Gay and Lesbian Community and Communications, 1940s-1970s (University of Chicago Press); queer theorist Juana Maria Rodriguez, associate professor of gender and women's studies at the University of California, Berkeley, and author of Queer Latinidad: Identity Practices, Discursive Spaces (New York University Press); and blogger Oscar Raymundo (Queerty and GayCities.com).
