I was heavily inspired by the work of Tyler Oakley, who is a well-known YouTuber and LGBTQ+ activist. I really admired how he used his platform to educate others about queer topics and to create a more inclusive world. I wanted to create a similar space on the internet where queer people could learn about queer topics and feel more represented.

What it does

Queer-ky is a website that provides information and resources about queer issues. It has a petition section where users can sign petitions to support queer rights, and a fact generator to provide information about queer issues. With its user-friendly interface and wealth of resources, Queer-ky is an excellent resource for anyone looking to learn more about queer issues or take action to support queer rights.

How we built it

I used HTML, CSS and JavaScript to build the website.

Challenges we ran into

One of the challenges I ran into while building Queer-ky was that I was solo-building the website and was working full-time while building the website, so time management was a challenge. The user interface and user experience was also a challenge because I am not an advanced web developer. Additionally, I wanted to make sure that the website was inclusive and intersectional, so I did a lot of research on queer issues and consulted with queer people to make sure that the website was respectful and accurate.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

I am proud to have built this project all by myself and have helped bring change!

What we learned

I learnt how to work on the user-interface of a website and make it look aesthetically pleasing.

What's next for Queer-ky

There are many ways that Queer-ky could grow and expand in the future. One possibility is to add more content, such as articles, videos, and interviews, on a variety of queer-related topics. Another possibility is to add more features to the website, such as a forum or a directory of queer-friendly businesses and organizations. Regardless of how it grows and changes, Queer-ky will continue to be a valuable resource for anyone who wants to learn more about queer issues and visibility.
