Several people have had something to say about our projects and services, below is a snapshot of what they say about us.
"When individuals who once identified as minorities who needed help, arise and take center stage by creating opportunities and advantage for themselves, one cannot but respond with amazement and wonder. I am being trained about digital security, internet safety and other useful stuff by individuals who once presented as minors but have possessed their potential as internet gurus and expert teachers. These queers mean business. These grassroots folk are serious professionals who are now empowering the powerful by teaching, educating and instructing us.
