Queering the Map is an online platform where users share their personal queer experiences on a map.
It started as a class project by Canadian artist Lucas LaRochelle at Concordia University.
It redefines queer spaces as relational experiences created or shared by queer individuals.
The project was relaunched with improved security and a moderation system.
An artificial neural network called QT.bot was also developed to make hypothetical queer stories.
