established by and for queer people.
queerli is a volunteer community collective,
promoting safe spaces, collaborating on diverse and inclusive partnerships, and hosting LGBTQIA+ events across eastern Long Island. There is an awareness that there are few establishments where we can go and feel completely accepted with open arms by like-minded individuals. This is not to say that there aren’t businesses truly doing the work. Still, we want to help grow that number, create a model for companies to follow and implement in their day-to-day interactions with patrons and staff, and host engaging community events.
