Here at My2024 headquarters we’re catching our breath from the amazing 10 day event, taking a step back, and looking for patterns from your futures for the LGBTQ movement across the My2024 platform, on social media, and in dozens of community center events over the 10 days of My2024.
Below is a first look at major themes from My2024 futures. We started with the raw set of words from all contributions and then did some light editing, mostly to combine related words like marry and marriage. And it’s interactive! Each word is a link to search the My2024 site for that topic.
This is a great way explore the hopes, concerns, predictions, and priorities that you imagined for LGBTQ people in 2024. You can start with the most frequent topics like marriage or identity—each one has many different branches of thinking—but also dive into next level themes like bisexual, rural, or climate.
For more highlights from the futures of My2024 check out the final Declaration, a call-to-action for the LGBTQ movement in 2024 we created together. And keep watching My2024 on Twitter and Facebook for more futures, more patterns, and new ways to imagine and make the future.
