The Queer Alternative promotes the acceptance, visibility and equality of queer people within goth, metal, punk, and other alternative subcultures, as well as working to help individuals who identify with those subcultures find a place within the mainstream LGBT+ community. Essentially, we support and bring together queer weirdos who like dressing up and dancing to strange music.
