There are two ways to contribute:

  • Submit your experiences relating to who you are when you’re online via the form below. We may contact you to ask for an image to go with your submission or if we have any questions.
  • Be interviewed by us using the chat platform of your choice, and submit a photos, screenshots or illustrations which demonstrate your online identity.

We always prefer the interview method, since having a conversation about experiences often brings out the nuances of individual identity. Sometimes an answer to a question might elicit more questions and the only way to find out is by engaging in dialogue.

But we realize this isn’t for everyone, so if you wish to just submit a paragraph about yourself, that is also fine!
