COCQ was created by Jai Crystal Jewels (@jaicrystaljewels on IG) and Kathy Sparkles (@sparklesproduct on IG), as a way to create more inclusive spaces for small queer-owned businesses.
Many queer artists don't fit (or aren't welcomed) into mainstream market spaces. By creating a queer-celebrated market space we hope to increase the opportunities for these artists to grow their businesses & share their creative spark with the world.

Jai & Kathy are both vendors themselves & understand what artists want & need in an event. They also have a combined 25+ years of event planning & administration experience.

Their motto for COCQ is:

By community.
For community.
Meaning the queer community. The vendor community. The artisan community. The human community.
