The web site for gay burners started a long time ago, but not nearly as long as the Burning Man ideology existed. Some say Queer Burners and Burning Man cannot co-exist under the same theory. Burning Man is about radical inclusion and everyone playing in the same sandbox on the same level. The theory is this is a gifting economy so sexual orientation, gender and economic class are irrelevant. In theory.
Gay Burners became Queer Burners less than four years ago by accident. It was an idea by Scott Kay aka Toaster in 2008 that evolved from a static site to the less static site it is today. His goal has been to make a site that gets contributions from various members of the community enriching everyone as a whole, which it has not really taken off. Much of the information is like a sign post.
Does the Gayborhood and queer focused camps keep lgbt Burners from integrating? Another important question is should we want integration?
Toaster brought Queer Burners to life to bring lgbt burning man people together with growing success. The 2015 Sprint Retreat in Northern California and the last 4 years of Queer Burner Leadership events were great examples of growth in the community.
