Dear GAQ readers / followers,
I have decided after much thought and deliberation that theGAQ tumblog will come to an end.
In May of 2009 I couldn’t find a blog that catered to Queer people of color OR the amazing breadth and depth of artwork our community has to offer. So I started this project passionately with the intention to have a catalog of queer art & culture as I embarked on a personal journey of finding out more about my sexuality, identity and community. The Tumblr LGBTQ community and TheGAQ have helped me every step of that journey – as I hope it’s helped a lot of you.
theGAQ has grown into an online source for those with similar interests – and has garnered a great deal of love and support. I’ve had the opportunity to meet a number of dope people and learn a tremendous amount through this space. I learned that our community is not limited by distance and location. There is a virtual community out there that can guide, help and encourage you through the best and worst of times.
I am completely thankful for the 3 years I’ve had working on theGAQ. But I am growing and changing and ready to embark on new and different personal creative projects. I apologize if this causes any disappointment or dismay. I am eternally grateful and thankful for being able to share this space with ya’ll.
I’ll keep theGAQ up as an Archive. To keep in touch with me personally, you can view my design/artwork on my portfolio site, http://cargocollective.com/mkbaldwin or follow my (extremely) random ramblings on twitter, http://twitter.com/_mekks
