Podcast: Queering the Future with Jason Tester

The Long Now Foundation · Jason Tester – Queering the Future: How LGBTQ Foresight Can Benefit All

Jason Tester asks us to see the powerful potential of “queering the future” – how looking at the future through a lens of difference and openness can reveal unexpected solutions to wicked problems, and new angles on innovation. Might a queer perspective hold some of the keys to our seemingly intractable issues?

Tester brings his research in strategic foresight, speculative design work, and understanding of the activism and resiliency of LGBTQ communities together as he looks toward the future. Can we learn new ways of thinking, and thriving, from the creative approaches and adaptive strategies that have emerged from these historically marginalized groups?
