Queer Humboldt is a California non-profit 501(c)3 corporation. Donations to Queer Humboldt are tax deductible. We appreciate our community volunteers, their time and their energy to help support the Queer Humboldt website. The Queer Humboldt organization has helped raise over $53,000 for local charities.

Why “queer”?

For many this term is an epithet, an insult, a threat. For many, the word has been reclaimed, much like the pink triangle, which came from the Holocaust but now is deployed and displayed as a symbol of gay and lesbian pride and activism. The insult behind the word “queer” is to say that someone is not normal. In reclaiming “queer,” activists and academics declare that there is value in challenging the norm. For many the word is more inclusive, more plural, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and other categories and refusals of categories. For many the word is more politicized, more radical, than the other options.
From the November 2003 MQS (Multicultural Queer Studies) Minor Coming Out Party at HSU.
