Indigenous LGBTIQ people are a marginalised group that do not have the luxury of representation on a broad range of social and cultural issues. The development of various online projects aims to challenge that. This paper is a discussion of the development of a blog project which supports Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander LGBTIQ peoples through link sharing online on social media. The themes of identity, social media, and Indigenous activism are rehearsed in this paper to demonstrate the potential for emerging projects that challenge oppressive politics.
