About Queer Profiles

Queer Profiles is an LGBTQ oral history series that seeks to highlight members of the queer community that we don’t often hear from. In the queer community, we usually hear only from people who have achieved “success” [defined by monetary or business achievement, physical appearance, or social media influence] or have crashed and burned, but rarely the ordinary queer people in between.

In an environment where numerous people are working tirelessly for attention, we look at the queer people who are not seeking attention, who go about their work quietly and play an important role, but who don’t always command the spotlight. Wishing to document both unique queer stories and those that share common elements all queers can relate to, we highlight people who are neither glamorous or tragic enough to be covered elsewhere.
