Today's LGBTQ communities in North and South Carolina need a news outlet that celebrates their unique and diverse voices and lived experiences. QnotesCarolinas.com provides a new online platform that amplifies these stories and creates a hub for online engagement that is community-sourced and supported, community-involved and hyper-local.
This is a project of Qnotes and Pride Publishing & Typesetting, Inc. Funding from the Google GNI Innovation Challenge has allowed for initial development, engineering, software integration and launch of the project. The long-term goal is to create a news and storytelling opportunity in communities across North and South Carolina with a sliding scale membership that allows sustainability and financial support of LGBTQ journalists, while encouraging open forums that give voice to people across the two states.
