In 2018, Lucas LaRochelle launched Queering the Map, a digital mapping project to collect and display LGBTQ+ stories and experiences worldwide. They have since created QT.bot, an Artificial Intelligence platform trained on textual and visual data from Queering the Map, that generates speculative queer and trans narratives and the environments in which they occur.

On October 18, we'll be joined by Lucas for a virtual talk in our Design Justice series, where they will discuss questions and issues related to Queering the Map and QT.bot, such as:
Why use fictional stories when discussing groups of people who have been ignored or left out of historical records?
