Queer on the Street to Cover New York City’s LGBTQ+ News, Events and Culture
A new LGBTQ+ media group, Queer on the Street (QotS), officially launched December 15, 2021. The news site focuses on LGBTQ+ news and events in New York City and the world.
QotS started as general blog, titled “yungmiga,” in July 2015 and covered events in Chicago. In 2017, yungmiga pivoted and began covering LGBTQ+ news, arts & culture and opinions. In 2021, YUNGMIGA became Queer on the Street.
“We strive for honest, strong journalism while adhering to our values. Queer on the Street believes in transparency, inclusivity, diversity and integrity in everything we do,” Founder and Editor-in-Chief of QotS, Nic F. Anderson, said.
QotS hopes to become a hub for all things LGBTQ+ for New York City.
At this time, pitches and articles from outside writers are not be accepted due to QotS’ status as self-funded.
“We do not allow people to work free or little money - writers should be paid fairly. Eventually, when there's funding, we will open our arms to all of you queer writers,” Anderson said.
There will be an announcement when QotS is financially stable to hired and pay writers.
