Welcome to Boston’s Queer Agenda!

The List: Boston’s Queer Agenda is a free weekly email calendar of events, a monthly email for Housing wanted or to offer, and a monthly Classifieds with jobs, groups and more for in and around the Boston region. The List encourages networking and centralizes information about upcoming events, volunteer and job opportunities, apartment postings and community announcements. 

The List is an entirely volunteer-run publication. We take no responsibility for the information shared in The List, so use at your own risk.  We completed a 2017 needs assessment to involve our subscribers in creating The List 3.0 (email if you’d like a copy of results).


Around 5,000 subscribers currently receive the weekly Events list.  The List has over 9,000 cumulative subscribers for all three of our Lists.

Our Mission

The List: Boston’s Queer Agenda integrates the arts, Internet technology and social change to create cultural activism with a particular eye towards lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, alternative, women’s, and progressive communities, including our allies.


SUBSCRIBING?: Please make a contribution of $10 – $50 annually to sustain the List. The List is an entirely volunteer-run publication. We incur monthly costs for the website domain, host and listserv that need to be raised every year (our time is free!). Your contribution is warmly accepted–we thank you!  Our belief is that people who can give more will in order to provide access for those who cannot so that we can keep the list free.

SUBMITTING?: See Submit page for specific info on how/where.  If your event charges a fee, a contribution of one admission fee is appreciated to support our efforts. Or add a photo, flyer, or business card to your free listing for a small contribution ( $25) – those additional contributions support our costs to run The List. Plus your Listing  will also be posted on our Facebook page.

You can contribute to The List 4 ways:

  1. via  GO FUND ME (they take a % fee)
  2. Or via paypal/credit card “send money friends” via email address kristen@dykenight.com (no fee)
  3. If you’d prefer to write a check, contact us for instructions (scroll down to Contact info below).
  4. Be a sponsor- see above.

Big love for your contribution- all our volunteers work really hard to provide this service to you. Please note: The List is a grassroots volunteer movement and is not a 501(c)3. We appreciate your contribution- and regret that it is not tax deductible.

Never feel you can’t subscribe to The List if you can’t contribute at this time. Give more if you can or less if you can’t.
