Interview with Kortney Ryan Ziegler of the Trans*H4CK Project

By Kortney Ryan Ziegler, Trans*H4CK, Tobias Raun, 2014

TSQ New Media editor Tobias Raun interviews Kortney Ryan Ziegler, the organizer of the Trans*H4CK hackathon, which took place in Oakland, California, in September 2013. The hackathon brought forty transgender, gender nonconforming, cisgender, and queer people together to create digital tools and content for trans communities. Raun and Ziegler discuss the usefulness of social entrepreneurship models to trans community formation, the importance of fostering digital activism by and for underrepresented communities, and the possibilities of circumventing traditional grant- making institutions by raising seed money for trans activism through crowd funding.
