I just discovered this was a thing and had to share it here. Its so fucking ridiculous.

First off, their slogan is "Queer, Inclusive, Badass" (starting with a slur. Lovely)

And here's their About Us blurb:

Pride month may be over, but LGBTQ lives are at risk. Trans Americans of all ages are under attack, women and people with the capacity for pregnancy have lost fundamental freedoms. Black, Latinx, and Asian Americans still face overt and systemic racism. Our workforce is experiencing extreme burnout, COVID-19 has shifted how we work faster than companies can keep up with, and most days we’re simply trying to keep up. Which is why we’re coming together in San Francisco and all over the world virtually to heal and prepare for the road ahead.

I love how they whine about racism while using a racist colonizer term like "Latinx". Also, of fucking course they address "transphobia" before touching on Roe v Wade at a WOMEN'S event. Can't let those lesbians forget who actually matters here!

There will be daycare, a kids meetup, ping pong, basketball hoops, mentoring and more. We expect over 15K to join us from all over the world.

Hopefully the drag queens they hire to watch the kids aren't convicted sex offenders this time....

Also, most of the speakers aren't tech people (and a lot of them are men). Most of them are some flavor of activist and look like they can barely work a smartphone, let alone offer any insight into what its like to be a woman in tech.

Speakers include notable ""lesbians"" like Chuckie Clymer and the (male) founder of Air BnB.

The mayor of San Francisco is also there. I'd like to believe that the attendees will ask her about all the human shit and homeless people they had to dodge to get there. But I'm guessing the mayor will just clean up the area around the conference and shuffle the homeless off to some poor neighborhood

So it looks like this is yet another lesbian/woman event that got colonized by trans/queer bullshit. And I'm pretty sure the tech part will also take a backseat to whining about trans issues and coddling all the men in attendance

Not sure why a tech meeting isn’t being hosted in Silicon Valley.

Silicon Valley is a combination of tech industrial parks, Stanford University and Medical Center, and small suburban towns. As such it doesn't offer the kind of hotel and restaurant capacity or shopping, sightseeing, and nightlife experiences that conference goers are looking for.
