Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer and others (LGBTIQ+) people across the world face varying levels of discrimination, exclusion, precarity, violence and phobia. Our difference seems to cancel out the possibility of empathy. But while there is the growing anti-gender backlash in Eastern Europe, Latin America and other parts of the world, there is also amazing strength of new voices speaking about intersectionality within the movement, about the experience of transgender and intersex people in particular and about the necessity of bringing our voices more strongly to speak about what concerns, impacts and affects us.

In this new bilingual edition of GenderIT.org, featuring a mix of in-depth articles and "Feminist Talk" blog posts, some in English and others in Spanish, different voices share what the priorities should be around sexuality and gender and the internet going forward. What does the feminist internet look like for LGBTIQ+ people?
