#GAReads | Bigotry and Its Amplifiers: A Response To LambdaConf
On May 29, 2017, I wrote a response to LambdaConfs’ purposeful invitation of misogynist Ed Latimore as their keynote speaker. I had already received considerable harassment on Twitter due to my speaking up about the event, but shortly before I was due to publish my response, Breitbart picked up the story, and the harassment became worse. I was afraid for my safety and I chose not to share my response with the world. You can find the Daily Camera’s story here.
The months following my speaking up were some of the hardest of my life.
