Alternatives HR is Hampton Roads Virginia's online media source for Alternative news, resources, and events calendars.  Alternatives HR was previously two websites, Q-matrix Hampton Roads LGBTQ Resources and Hampton Roads Pagan Resource Directory.  To simplify my life, I've combined both websites into one site and have extended the mission of the sites to include other Alternative lifestyles, orientations, spiritualities, and communities.  In addition to LGBTQ and Pagan resources, we are now happy to welcome those in the New Age community, polyamorists, and other alternative communities.  We will also feature adult oriented Alternative communities, but you must be over age 18 and a member of the site to view these sections on our site. Most sections will be safe for work and for minors, though they will offer ideas and opinions that may run counter to mainstream sensibilities and culture.  We ask that you view the site with an open mind. If something isn't your thing, just move past it to the resources and communities that you are interested in.

We are currently transitioning content from the old sites and will be phasing these sites out over the next several months.  We are planning for an official launch to this site in January 2017.

Once this site is fully in place, free memberships to the site will be accepted.  Membership will allow for two main things:  1) It will allow any member to post articles to the Alternative HR site.  Articles will still need to be approved by our staff.  And 2) Members will be allowed to view the mature and explicit sections on our website.  Additional menu items will be available.

As with the previous websites, we are currently looking for writers and volunteers to help us make this website great.  We will also accept various advertising on the website and all money will go back into the site, including marketing, providing additional resources, and possibly to host some community events promoting tolerance and freedom to be who you are.
