Description

Queer Design Club is an online free community with a Slack group for LGBTQ+ designers to share their work and connect with each other.

The community discusses a wide range of topics. It starts from the role of designers in LGBTQ+ activism and goes all the way to relevant LGBTQ+ contributions to the design space.

The community has a Slack group for networking purposes. It's an exclusive space for designers to share ideas and expand their knowledge and network. To join, you need to request an invitation.

One of the best features of this community is the members' directory. It's a list of all the profiles of the designers that are part of the community. You can find their names, location, and area of expertise and reach out to like-minded people.
