A Lot to Be Proud Of!
 
We all have a lot to be proud of lately, and what better time to celebrate than Pride month? President Obama reaffirmed the proclamation in the U.S. on June 1st and already the haters are acting as if this is the first anyone's dared think of such a thing. That's why it's more important than ever for us to stay strong and united while we step out proudly to reaffirm our right to exist, to love, and be loved. To educate and raise awareness for those who still think they're all alone and somehow bad and wrong. Our co-founder Sage even wrote a blog post on just this topic. Please take a moment to read it, like it, and share it across all your social networks.

Meanwhile we've got tons of causes to celebrate and be proud about here at Qommunity. Membership is approaching 300. Pageviews of the site are approaching 1.5 million. And best of all, you all are getting on the site day after day and sharing your beautiful selves with each other. That's what this community called Qommunity is all about. Thank you! Of all the things we take pride in this month, perhaps what we are most proud of... is YOU!!!

With all our love,
Sage & Curry Kalmus
Qommunithy Co-founders

Qommunity is preparing to launch a publishing label with a whole season of work, short-form and long, by queer and queer-positive writers and artists -- and SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW OPEN! Whether the work is queer-themed or not, we want to see it.

Qommunity just improved its Videos features to add Video Channels. Now users can create personal, professional, and themed channels of videos to share. Promote yourself, tell your stories, share your world. Start your own Video Channel(s) on Qommunity today!

Also, there's a new way Qreators can add videos to Qommunity. Previously (and still) you could add videos from YouTube, DailyMotion, and Vimeo, and upload videos directly from your computer. Now you can add videos from anywhere  with only the EMBED CODE. Just look for this symbol (</>) in the Share options of the videos you wish to add, and if it's available, simply/copy paste the code that appears into the Embed Code field on the Add Video form.
