About Queer|Art

Queer|Art connects and empowers LGBTQ+ artists across generations and creative disciplines. Founded by in 2009, we are an artist-led, community-focused organization united by shared values ​​of collective care, creative resilience, and the preservation and promotion of queer legacies and futures.

The devastating loss of a generation of artists to the ongoing AIDS pandemic has created a deep desire for intergenerational connections, mentorship and community. Queer|Art serves as a ballast against this loss, seeking to highlight and address a fundamental and persistent lack of economic and institutional support for our community.

Ongoing programmatic initiatives include: our core annual program, the year-long Queer|Art|Mentorship; our long-running HBO-sponsored Queer|Art|Film series at the IFC Center; and a wide range of awards, grants, and offers that provide direct support to LGBTQ+ artists.
