This event is conducted in English and in Japanese.

We as designers and developers fret over the small details. How will this be implemented? How can we make this easy to use? In these small details and assumptions is where one of the largest failures in technology for nonbinary and transgender individuals comes. Attend this interactive workshop to learn how to recognize your own limitations and to design and develop better for those in the LGBTQ community. We'll be using Hello!Rainbow, an application we designed for LGBTQ folks to make queer friends as an example of how to better your design for the non-binary and trans* community.


Chelsea Hostetter is the co-founder of Hello!Rainbow, an LGBTQ social application for queer folks to make queer friends as well as a UX designer and researcher at the IT coaching company yamaneco in Tokyo, Japan. They have researched the LGBTQ community in Texas and is planning on doing another round in Tokyo. They hope that their work will help bridge empathy gaps between tech and the queer community. When not researching or designing, they can be found creating her own video games for hackathons like Global Game Jam and curling up with their cat, Jello.
