LGBT Sherbrooke 1st social network
What is LGBT Sherbrooke?
LGBT Sherbrooke is a site serving the LGBTQQIAAP community (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, allied, asexual, pansexual) of Sherbrooke and its surroundings.
This site is a place of healthy exchange between LGBTQ +, but also open to heterosexuals, so a place of listening, prevention and meeting without discrimination.
LGBT Sherbrooke talks about what?
LGBT Sherbrooke brings together all forms of discussion, topics. We talk about sport, politics, prevention, gossip, film, current affairs about the LGBTQ + community, but not only, we talk about current affairs in the broad sense. LGBT Sherbrooke is a range of topics, sometimes serious, sometimes light, that give rise to sometimes funny, often engaged, never unhealthy, always interesting exchanges between the members, all perfectly orchestrated by the moderators and the community.
LGBT Sherbrooke what for?
The creator of LGBT Sherbrooke searched for local websites for the LGBTQ + community of Sherbrooke and Estrie.
He searched for many answers to his questions about his sexuality. Difficult questions to discuss with friends, let alone family.
The solution was to find this place of exchange, prevention, meeting dedicated to an LGBTQ + public online in his region.
However, there was no convenient website to chat online and gather the various resources of the region for the LGBTQ + local Sherbrooke and Estrie community. There were Facebook pages but Facebook groups were risky, since other users might see you as part of the group.
So because the adage wants that “we are never better served than by oneself”, as much create this place in line in his image, in the image of his public!
Who is behind LGBT Sherbrooke?
LGBT Sherbrooke was born in 2012 in the brain of a webmaster who has an obstinate brain, sometimes twisted like any good webmaster. Fond of computers, he invests without counting on the net and does not count his hours when a problem occurs.
While building the website, he was listening to music online and one day he started looking for an online LGBTQ + radio in the area, but there was none. so he started searching on how to stream music online for one day add this feature to the website.
Soon a collaborator was added to do the English-French translations and corrections. He will also be responsible for the online radio playlists.
After several liters of coffee, sleepless nights and cerebral overheating, the site takes shape quickly. Until the end of 2017, only local trials are carried out. In late 2018, it’s the big jump. The site evolves gradually, with soon new services …
The gaymer community
The webmaster is a gamer at heart. He realized that the LGBTQ + gamer community in the area was underground. That’s why an online chat server has been created. Any LGBTQ + or ally who plays games are invited to join the online chat groups. This is another good way to break the isolation.
