OUR STORY

Brainchild of Roanne & Tina

Queer Safe Spaces is the brainchild of Filipino queer content creator and real-life partners— Roanne Carreon and Tina Boado (RoTin). Having struggled with coming out themselves, they created the Family RoTin Facebook Group in 2019 to provide an online safe space for queer people, especially young individuals who are navigating their sexual identities.

In 2021, the online community group transitioned into an SEC-registered non-profit organization, which is now known as Queer Safe Spaces, Inc.

Queer Safe Spaces began as a dream shared during late-night talks. Facebook believed in their vision and provided $50,000 funding to establish it as a full-fledged non-profit organization through its selection as one of the Top 1% Global Finalists for the Facebook Community Accelerator Program.

In 2024, Queer Safe Spaces was selected as one of the 127 emerging Global Leaders to represent the Filipino LGBTQIA+ community at the Community Engagement Exchange Program held in the United States.

In a society that discriminates the LGBTQIA+ community, we're here for representation.
