In general, architects like to talk about how much their designs influence communities, and it makes perfect sense for them to do so. In the end, physical spaces and different social factors influence how each individual feels when they inhabit the city or occupy a building. But do all projects respond to all users the same way? We set out to question the way in which architecture approaches the LGBTQIA+ community, through an open call on our social networks, collecting the testimony of our readers on how they inhabit these spaces and how it would be possible to represent the community in the architectural field. This action seeks to present a small overview that will help us understand where the profession and society are currently facing, in relation to people of different genders and sexual orientations. Among the 87 responses received, for the three questions asked during a 24-hour period, we selected some that more clearly explain the reality experienced by these people, who –despite some progress and contrary to what many people believe– are still affected for different types of violence and lack of representation.
