Rapid Response Fellow
2020 – 2020
Morgen Bromell is a founder and technologist working to make tech more accessible to people of color through justice-based initiatives and tech activism. Apart from being the founder of Thurst, a dating app for the LGBTQIA+ community, they are also deeply invested in community building and documenting queer histories, particularly how queer and trans people use digital resources and online platforms to navigate our world.
Rapid Response Project
Bromell is creating a design guide and tool list that will assist designers, creators, and developers of other platforms, apps, and websites to include and center people of any gender (or no gender) looking to utilize their project or online space. One of the goals is to make online spaces, especially those that emphasize social connection, more accessible and safe for the LGBTQIA+ community and alleviate the need for space, intra-community discourse and connection, and resource sharing.
