This is a happy, celebratory site, ready to uplift queer/LGBTQIA+ voices so that one day, the headlines surrounding our lives will not be as harrowing as they are. Our aim is to celebrate us, to show the world and young queers and LGBTQIA folk that life can be good, can be kind. We celebrate the small and large moments with confetti, so that positivity and strength can be our origin story, and not battering headlines and fear. Show the world we aren’t just love is love, but whole people able to inspire, create, live and breathe.
That is our mission, and that is why we created with confetti.
our origin story…
with confetti was built on a reaction. One day, the Editor-in-Chief was so enraged and overwhelmed with what was being said about trans and nonbinary people, and the community in general, that she felt hopeless and sad. Instead of drifting into the abyss of horrible people saying horrible things, she decided to turn against it in her own unique way: by celebrating and uplifting the every day and magnificent moments in queer/LGBTQIA life.
So, if you’re poised to write an angry email about how limiting submissions to just queer/LGBTQIA people is ‘wrong’, please consider that you will be blocked and ignored, because we don’t need that kind of negativity in life. Similarly, if you are racist, sexist, trans-hating/LGBTQIA-hating, xenophobic, ableist, or any kind of hateful person, you will not be heard. We have enough to deal with in the media from ‘important’ figures. We don’t need to hear your added layer of spite.
