This new project has its roots in the old Queer Fresno, our very first local gay blog, back in 2002. A year later we expanded and operated five additional sites. Three to the north (Queer Merced, Queer Modesto, Queer Stockton) and two in the south (Queer Visalia and Queer Bakersfield). We were six sites strong connecting people and gay friendly businesses and organizations up and down the Central Valley. When we had the opportunity to purchase this domain name in 2019, frankly it came as a shock it was even available, we jumped at the chance. After months and months of deliberation and careful thought we decided to revamp and relaunch our efforts in the spirit of the old QF. We strive be a one-stop shop for events and information for the LGBTQ+ community in Central California. So here we are in 2020, a new domain name, but the same mission and mindset as the old Queer Fresno and her sister sites!

Important foot note: This new project is in no way affiliated with the 501(c)3 organization under the same name that ran the Fresno LGBT Center. That group ceased operations in 2018 and officially filed dissolution papers with the state of California in 2019.
