Mission

What is The Human Experience? It is the validity in your story and the story of 7,000,000,000 other people in this world. How do you put a label on being human? You don’t. You open your heart and listen.

This is the foundation of our queer publication, The Human Experience (T.H.E.). T.H.E. believes in the validity of individual identities and that all people have the right to be heard, valued and welcomed in their community. By lessening bigotry and stereotypes within the queer community, we endeavor to create such a space for queer identifying people and allies.

T.H.E. will cultivate stronger communities globally through dialogue and collaboration via discussion-based opinion pieces from our readers and in-person meetups, we will give voice to our entire community by showcasing the creative people and advocates who impact queer culture and we will bring attention to local and global issues that affect the queer community, especially the marginalized communities within the queer spectrum.

Goals

  1. Create positive queer media that’s realistic, humanizing and that portrays people as individuals without reinforcing stereotypes. Support and acknowledge those individuals who are creating and influencing queer media and culture.
  2. Provide space for queer identifying people and allies to discuss issues of identity, to express themselves, to utilize their individual voices and to share personal stories and experiences. Focus on people and our experiences that exist outside of our labels; illustrate our individual human experiences.
  3. Facilitate and promote networking, meet-ups, community building and educational projects. Encourage people to connect locally and in-person to help create safe, comfortable, inclusive spaces for queer identifying people and allies.
  4. Bring attention to global and local issues that affect marginalized communities within the larger queer community.

Participate in our Social Media Campaigns

Our social media campaigns are an avenue for you to express and share your human experience either through writing, photography or video. The more human experience submissions we receive, the more diversity we’ll have to show the world.

Each of our identities are unique and each of our identities are valid. The labels that I identify with are only aspects of who I am. No single word captures my entire human experience, and just because I identify with labels such as lesbian, woman, Mexican-American – it doesn’t mean that my experience with those labels are the same with another person who also identifies with them. No two people are the same.

We share commonalities in our human experiences, but there is diversity in our individual experiences.

Share Your Human Experience with the World.
