About Queering The Map

What is Queering The Map?:
Queering the Map is a community generated counter-mapping platform for digitally archiving LGBTQ2IA+ experience in relation to physical space.

The platform provides an interface to collaboratively record the cartography of queer life—from park benches to the middle of the ocean—in order to preserve our histories and unfolding realities, which continue to be invalidated, contested, and erased. From collective action to stories of coming out, encounters with violence to moments of rapturous love, Queering the Map functions as a living archive of queer life. 

Currently, Queering The Map is home to over 120 000 stories of queer joy, pain, and resistance, in 23 languages, from across the world.

Through mapping these ephemeral moments of queer experience, Queering the Map aims to create a living archive that reveals the ways in which we are intimately connected.

Why We Need Funds:
Because we want to ensure that Queering the Map exists as a sustainable living archive of queer experience well into the future.

Funds will go towards:

-paying for hosting + database upgrades
-updating the moderation process to increase speed
-translating the site to make it more accessible
-upgrading the security of the site
-developing the site and adding new features 

We want to do this without taking corporate sponsorship that would compromise the ethics of the project. To do that we need your help.
