Throughout the COVID-19 crisis over 300,000 people have visited Queerantine.me to send virtual tips to 310 LGBTQ+ bartenders, bar staff, restaurant workers, drag and burlesque artists, and other nightlife workers throughout 6 cities across the country who were impacted by the sudden loss of income last year. To all of you who visited and sent money to someone you found on this site, thank you for your generosity!
Restrictions around the country are being lifted and life is back to normal for most of us, so we are shutting down Queerantine.me. But we would like to encourage you to continue supporting those in the LGBTQ+ community who work hard to make our community and entertainment spaces stronger.
We especially thank those of you who work in those spaces for serving the community. When restaurants and bars were first allowed to open, your hard work allowed the rest of us to have a little bit of normalcy back in our lives. Now that the pandemic is nearly over and businesses are allowed to open at full capacity without restrictions, we still remember the hard work and sacrifices you made to serve the rest of us.
With heartfelt gratitude,
