Within the conservative sociohistorical context present in the Colombian society, a non-profit, voluntary, civil society museum initiative, under the name of Museo Q, makes use of digital platforms and media to give visibility to queer perspectives and people, and to argue for their wellbeing. This work is an exploration of the museum's particular relationship with social media as a result of its Minor Architecture, the influence and importance of that relationship on queer activism and people in Colombia, and the use given by artists to the museum's virtual spaces in order to discuss sensitive topics such as Religion. In addition to this, this work also explores the previously mentioned sociohistorical context surrounding the museum’s activistic efforts, its present recognitions, the current legislation concerning queer people in Colombia, and one of the ways in which we, as members of a reputable educational institution, can contribute to the work done by similar organizations.
