I am changing the name of LGBToday for two main reasons.
One is that “LGBT” does not encompass every community this app is about and for. We don’t fit easily into boxes so I wanted a broader name that would not hold back the amount of history we capture that is related in some way to gender and sexual orientation. Not every historymaker in the app will have had the identity of L, G, B, or T — Especially pre-1800′s when those terms didn’t even exist.
The other is to help people (especially youth) who are not comfortable with downloading an app with “LGBT” in the name to access the app. Hopefully the new “vague” name will help us to reach closeted people around the world.
With that said, the new name is Quist — short for “queer history.” We’re now at www.facebook.com/quistapp and http://www.twitter.com/quistapp.
What do you think?
