SXSW Interactive 2016

Lesbians Who Tech (and Friends) Meet Up

This meetup provides a welcoming place for lesbians to meet up and connect at SXSW. Oftentimes it's hard for lesbians to find one another, even in their own companies. This meetup gives lesbians, queer women and allies an opportunity to connect.

The meetup is hosted by Lesbians Who Tech, the community for queer women in tech (and the people who love them). With 25 chapters and over 10,000 members worldwide, Lesbians Who Tech is where lesbians connect and build a network of friends, colleagues, investors and advisors in the industry.
