About Us

 

It is the mission of Queer Cafe Network to educate the public regarding LGBTQ topics and to raise awareness of LGBTQ issues. The target audience of this website is the LGBTQ community and those who support the LGBTQ community, including allies, teachers, advocates, counselors, mentors, and activists.

 

Queer Cafe Network owns and operates this public website and is solely responsible for its content. We maintain this independent, not-for-profit website as an educational service and information resource. It is intended for your general informational use only and offered for your consideration.

 

This is a curated website. Content is carefully selected, thoughtfully organized, and regularly updated.  It is our intention to present interesting and relevant content that has been reviewed for accuracy, quality, and appropriateness.  When necessary, externally sourced material may be edited for length, language, suitability, and brand consistency.
 

Subject Matter

 

The subject matter of this website seeks to address a wide range of sexual identity topics and sexual minority issues, including information related to sex, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. We seek to present this information in a sensitive, positive, affirming, inclusive, and non-judgmental manner.  

 

While we make no guarantees that the information is complete or error-free, it is our sincere intention to provide accurate, up-to-date, research-based material to raise awareness and understanding, and to assist in the dissemination and advancement of knowledge, and the expansion of education, in the area of sexual minority concerns and issues, including topics relevant to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer community.

 

To this end, a wide variety of well-considered resources is offered through this website and through the links to numerous other website locations on the internet.

 

Text and content featured throughout this website employ the use of the acronym LGBTQ as an umbrella term to represent the words lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer. The word queer is also employed as an umbrella term to refer to a wide range of sexual and gender minorities.

 

Content

 

This website contains mature subject matter. At times, articles may contain frank discussions and explicit descriptions involving matters of human sexuality. While some material may not be suitable for minors, it is not our intention to feature any lewd, obscene, or pornographic subject matter.

 

It is not our intention to feature any material that is otherwise controversial, provocative, derogatory, or offensive. We do at all times seek to advance standards of decency and literacy and present subject matter from a scientifically-supported viewpoint.

 

Content on this website might include scholarly articles, research-based reports, educational information, personal stories, opinion essays, news reports, entertainment pieces, and humorous material. While much of the content is informational, some content is purely for fun.

 

While we make every effort to ensure the accuracy, validity and appropriateness of the material accessed through our website, we are not responsible for the content of websites that users may visit via the links we provide.
