Why QMB is "Queer" and why that's a great thing.

Perhaps "queer" is a new concept for many and we want to give a very brief overview to highlight the importance of groups like QMB. Queer is not a bad word, it is a theory, an identity, a body of research, a set of core beliefs that seek true equality. Queer culture and beliefs generally regard heteronormative expectations as negatively impacting every person in our society. Perhaps you have experienced pressure to marry, wear heels (or not wear heels) to work, earn enough to provide for a family on your own, or enjoy an exceptionally bitter IPA, and you're not really digging that. Queer people get it. Practices and institutions that privilege heterosexuality as "normal" result in loss of rights, access, effective justice, peace, and understanding by defining other identities as not normal. They may force you to not be your authentic self. QMB is a positive and spirited platform that gives the "others" representation in brewing by simply making great beer, being ourselves, and participating in local community events.
