Guests: Alma Hunnik and Jing
Hosts: Esmee Woltring and Koen de Boer
In this Ongehoord podcast, we talk about digital gender identity, with guests Alma and Jing. In his research, Jing looked at the different gender expressions of transgender "virtual YouTubers", through the use of their virtual avatars. We go into discussion about what this means, alongside our other guest, Alma. She wrote an article about gender performance of the online "cyborg" influencer Lilmiquela, and what her gender expression means, since she is not a "real" person. This digital gender identity podcast goes into great detail about many questions that these topics might raise!
