Welcome to our first installment of the Pink Pages Q&A, where we talk to interesting people doing interesting things. (We are thinking Q&A can stand for both “question and answer” or “queer and awesome.”)
Jes: What motivated you to start an online calendar and newsletter?
NiQ: My on-line GLBTQ calendar was the result of a gap I personally felt within the community; there were all of these queer events taking place all of town (Victoria) that I would hear about (usually after the fact!) but other than the posters at the local queer bars there wasn’t anywhere else to find out about them so creating a calendar seemed the most logical thing to do. I also didn’t want to ‘limit’ my calendar to just Victoria events so I made connections with other GLBTQ sites/communities in B.C. to help bridge that gap & encourage folk to go to events out of town. The newsletter progressed from the calendar; it’s basically a way of reminding folk that the information is out there; all they have to do is ‘click.’
