Abstract:Stigma is an attribute that differentiates and negatively classifies an individual within a specific categorized identity. Multiple identities are stigmatized, such as the LGBTQ and PoC communities. When these identities are layered on top of one another, so are the stigmas associated with them, and this creates an increased risk of negative consequences. Literature indicates that a way to ameliorate these negative consequences is to find ways to cope. This lit- erature review analyzes the current research regarding what is known about how QPOC leverage ICTs as a tool for coping with stigma. Overall, it was found that not much is known about the particular ICTs QPoC are leveraging to cope, nor is there much knowledge on how they are using these unidentified ICTs. Further research is necessary to better understand what ICTs are being used and how QPoC are using them in order to help ameliorate the negative consequences of stigma.
