Sniffies @ SXSW 2022 | Alexander Cheves on Anonymity in Digital Space

Sure we can be anonymous online, but anon hookups are a feature of queer sex that dates back decades. 

 At SXSW 2022, Sniffies presented a panel called Tech and the New Fluidity of Male Sexuality. With panelists Zachary Zane, Jacob Tobia, and Alexander Cheves, we discussed queerness in digital spaces, anonymous hookups, and the meanings of labels like "bi" "gay" "non binary" "queer" etc. in a world where gender and sexual expression is expansive and inclusive. Our panelists touched on the responsibility tech platforms like Facebook and Instagram have for the queer community, queerbaiting as exploration, and commodifying queer identities online.
