September Update

Hi everyone! My research has taken a slight shift, and I’ve been looking at the use of online discourse as a means to negotiate the lack of physical spaces. Considering that many of the consistent LGBT+ space (i.e., outside of Pride events) tend to cater to adults who have an interest in sexual and romantic relationships thus creating a situation where those who either aren’t adults or have no interest in sexual and romantic relationships can’t find a space. While this is still in line with my research on gatekeeping, it provides an explanation as to why so many people go to the internet to find these spaces that are not available in the physical realm.
