When did you create your business, and what inspired you to start?
A: January 2nd, 2022. After attending Brave Trails (a queer youth leadership camp), I wanted to create that euphoric experience that you feel at Brave Trails.
That feeling where you can be your full authentic self. As people look locally or travel the world, I wanted to create something that would allow them to be their full authentic selves.
I hope that the queer-owned businesses on our map will provide a safer space for folks. I also think about the queer youth and when I was in high school. I wish I knew of a queer-owned coffee shop that I could sit at (out or not) and see queer people exist and work.
