App we love right now: Quist
About the App
Quist, a lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) history app, highlights the events of the past that have made the future of LGBT what it is today. Quist reports historical events on any particular day in history from all around the world, from historical marches and legislature to not-as-well-known historical acts.
According to their website, Quist’s mission is to educate the world about the roots of the LGBT community, make LGBT history more engaging and relevant, and let LGBT youth know that others have shared their struggle.
Features and Usability
Whether you’re a history buff or you’re just looking to get to know more about the history of the LGBT community, this app has the ideal features and simplicity for users of all ages.
Events are featured by day in history, but users can also search by country or explore the database of nearly 800 historical events by date. The interactive interface is both easy to use and visually appealing with photos and historical facts listed on each event.
Why We Love This App
In short, we love Quist because it portrays the same values of Turtle Creek Chorale. TCC has a long-standing history in the city of Dallas for their work with lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered (LGBT) charities, outreach, and pride groups, as well HIV/AIDs funding and awareness groups. Throughout the organization though one thing remains clear — their passion for history and LGBT outreach.
