There is no hiding in the 21st century. This project highlights the dangers of online surveillance  to the LGBTQ+ community. Authorities in Russia, Egypt, Israel and Iran use citizens' Internet history, photos and biometric data to (often) accurately predict their sexuality without their knowledge. 

As Yuval Noah Harari  wrote: “(in the future) People will not be able to escape persecution by retreating back into the closet, because new technologies are breaking it apart”. This project maps these predicition algorithms in order to identify hacks that break the data chain, or, Queer the data. Four leaflets correspond to the four data chains mapped out through research.
