We are dedicated to the education, awareness, and visibility of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans, queer, and straight ally community. As an organization we value equality, pride, and leadership and believe in the principles of social justice and building community.
We provide original commentary on the news and current events and we actively market and promote events that serve the our community. We also manage a 36-city directory of local links to gay and gay-friendly businesses, services, and organizations. You can check that out here.
This project began in 2001 with the launch of a local news and information site dedicated to the gay community in Fresno, CA. Queer Fresno eventually expanded to Queer Visalia, Queer Bakersfield, Queer Merced, Queer Modesto, and Queer Stockton two years later. We opened up our first out of state blogs in Philadelphia, Miami, Dallas, and Seattle. We morphed into our first national blog in 2009 and eventually rolled up all of our local sites under the giant umbrella of Queer Landia. We shut down operations in 2014 and took a two year hiatus. We revamped and relaunched blogging operations again under our new brand GAYLANDIA in 2018.
