Learn more about a provider through ratings and reviews from other LGBTQ+ people, and share your experiences to help others. QSPACES is like Yelp, but for LGBTQ+ healthcare.
Use ratings and reviews from other LGBTQ+ people to choose a provider that is right for you.
Find a LGBTQ+ friendly doctor or healthcare provider that is right for you!
Healthcare is a human right.
The LGBTQ+ community deserves competent, equitable, and affordable healthcare.
We’ve heard so many stories of discrimination, refusal of care, doubt, and shame in healthcare because of our sexual orientations and gender presentation–and we have experienced it ourselves.
We understand the anxiety and worry about it happening again. And we know the relief and joy of connecting with a healthcare provider that is affirming and welcoming.
QSPACES is working towards a future where LGBTQ+ friendly and competent healthcare is the default.
Right now, it’s just me, Catherine / Cat Hofmann. I wear all the hats – design, development, marketing, bookkeeping, and more.
I was born and raised in Indiana, spent 10 years in North Carolina, then moved to West Philadelphia in 2015. In that time, I went to college, working in the service industry, manufacturing, and with a lot of artists, designers, and makers. In 2012, I started Hellcat Studio, an independent design and business consulting company (my “real” job).
In 2016, I cofounded QSPACES because I–and so many others–are looking for LGBTQ+ friendly doctors. After 5 years of potholes, I just built it myself. It’s not perfect, but it’s something! And it was fucking hard.
I hope QSPACES helps you find the healthcare you deserve.
