We hope you enjoyed our April Fools' Day fun! "Queercraft" is here to stay! ;)
Although “queer” is a relatively well-reclaimed umbrella term for the LGBTQ, to some people, it remains controversial. After weeks of deliberation to find a name that would communicate “LGBTQ-friendly” in a universally positive and affirming light, we came up with the perfect new name: Pridecraft!
But then, who would have thought, it was already taken!
This left us no choice but to go with our back-up plan, RainBeauCraft ™. We have since reasoned, that we really do like this alternative. Rainbows are an eternally cheery LGBTQ symbol. The RainBeau spelling additionally serves to honor our founder Beaupedia. (And “Rainbow Craft” was already taken too.)
Over the next few weeks, you may find traces of our former name scattered throughout the community, as they are gradually replaced. This gradual process will allow us to work at a leisurely pace, and allow you, our members, a chance to adjust to this much needed change.
