Connecting Queer Communities

Connecting Queer Communities

Community
Often, we have ideas rattling around in our brains. It's the thing they always resurface in quiet moments.  It's the “I should…” thing that nags you. As a business owner, I am always looking for ways to grow my business. Smart ways to grow my business, not “Build a million followers in a week” kind of stuff, but serious strategies and best practices to build a true business network. I've been doing this Marketing thing for close to 15 years, and here is what I've learned so far. Most local B2B business happens via word of mouth. As a rule, accountants do get business because they tweet, but because one of their customers was happy with their services and referred them to a business colleague. Social media, websites help reinforce…

Did we vote for the “queer” thing and I missed it?

Did we vote for the “queer” thing and I missed it?

Community
I am here, I am queer... OK, you know the rest.  When I talk about our community, I tend to use the umbrella term "Queer."  Using Gay seems too limiting and trying to figure out which part of the alphabet to use to be all inclusive gets tedious and I'm bound to leave someone out.  So for me, it's Queer. GLAAD recently moved from LGBT to LGBTQ. Better, but inevitably there are those who feel left out.     Not wanting to offend I decided to use queer feeling it was more inclusive.  What could go wrong? Wait for it.... Yup, I pissed a few people off.  On Facebook, naturally. I had made a list introducing our new Queer Business group on LinkedIn (yes, a not so subtle plug -…

Queer Clean & Sober Tattoo Artist

Queer Clean & Sober Tattoo Artist

Queer Voices
Recently, we sat down with Brody Polinsky in Berlin.  We talked about his journey as a queer, clean & sober tattoo artist. Originally post on Bear Riker's Berlin Why did you feel the need for a queer safe space? I have tattooed in a lot of other dynamics and spaces, even gay, yet never been totally comfortable in my own skin. Most were conventional tattoo studios, which can be hyper masculine and party environments. The personal dynamics between everyone in a studio sets the tone for the day and the outcome of the tattoo, in my opinion. It’s hard to leave your shit at the door and it really affects everyone around you. Queer Clean & Sober Tattoo Artist Thus the clean and sober tag line? Yep, I’ve been sober…
