Have you ever walked in to a room and felt like you didn’t belong there? Have you ever let go of your partners hand when walking somewhere new ‘just in case’? So have we.

With that in mind, we’ve created Places – a map of cafes, restaurants, bars, doctors and other venues rated on their queer-friendliness by the queer community.

Whether you’ve had a great experience or a terrible one, let other people know about it by leaving a rating. Was it a great spot for gay men, but not super welcoming of lesbians, or transgender people? Were the staff really friendly, but the security gave you trouble? Call it out easily with predefined criteria to help other members of the community find safe spaces for them.

Scoping out a new restaurant for date night? A new brunch spot? Or just want to go somewhere where you can be yourself? Whether you’re a traveller or a local, find your Place with Spectrum.


When it comes to queer issues, there’s so much information out there, but it can be tough to know what to look for. That’s why we’ve created the Spectrum Library – so that we can provide you with the right information at the right time, no matter where you are on your journey.

The Spectrum Library aggregates, catalogues and stores information from industry sources, as well as real-life stories, advice and guidance from others in the community. 

Whether you need information about coming out, sexual health or just want to learn more about your community, you’ll find what you’re looking for in the Library.


Like the seasons, the cast of the Bachelor and those… fashion choices you made in 2014, things change, and so do you! Head to your Profile and update your details – including orientation and gender identity! – any time you like. No limits.

Any Places you’ve favourited or articles you’ve saved are stored here too.
Changed your mind about a review, but can’t find the place again? Your rating history can be accessed and edited in the Profile tab as well.

The Future

We’re constantly planning updates and additions to Spectrum.
Check back periodically for upcoming features and added functionality.
