Who We Are

Qommunity is an integrated global social network, information resource, and marketplace in a free website (qommunity.org) and apps for iOS & Android. 

The MISSION of Qommunity: The Queer Social Network(TM) is to provide safe and supportive space for the LGBTQ community and our straight allies to explore and express who we are.

The VISION of Qommunity is to become the one-stop resource for the LGBTQ and straight ally community.

Gazing into our pink and purple crystal ball at the future, we envision Qommunity:

 

  • Sponsoring a 24-hour emotional support hotline with international reach.

  • Publishing a season each year of queer and queer-friendly writers and artists that appears alongside the other major publishing houses in all the key review sources and booklists.

  • Hosting physical centers in cities around the world that continue to support the Qommunity mission of providing safe and supportive space for people to explore and express who they are.

  • Collaborating with other causes to cosponsor awareness, outreach, and fundraising events that cross-boundaries and build respect for differences and appreciation for diversity.

Who We Serve


Qommunity serves 2 main populations:

  1. LGBTQ - lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgenders, and “queers” which is used here as an umbrella term to encompass asexuals, non-binaries and other MOGAI (Marginalized Orientations, Gender Alignments and Intersex)

  2. "Straight Allies" - heterosexuals who support LGBTQ equality

  3. Businesses and organizations that serve or wish to serve these individuals. This includes those serving other, perhaps overlapping, populations that wish to support, align, associate, and partner more with the LGBTQ community.
