Founded in September 2016, Queer Tech Montreal is a volunteer-run community advocacy group for gender, sex and sexual minority (LGBTQ) professionals in the technology sector. Our mandate centres particular focus on the needs and activities of LGBTQ tech-entrepreneurs implicated within the start-up ecosystem of Montreal. We embrace diversity and inclusion as core guiding principles, so Ally and non-Queer professionals are always welcomed with open arms into our network of fun, astute and benevolent members.
Our community congregates monthly at different venues located in our home town that has witnessed a recent flurry of growth within its tech industry. Here we outline initiatives we advance at our monthly events and present the team that has grown Queer Tech Montreal into a prominent advocacy group at the intersection of geek, fabulous and today’s tech economy.
But first, we explain our raison d’être.
