Queer Ancestors Project

Queer Ancestors Project

This free yearly program gathers queer and trans young adults ages 18 to 26 for an 18-week workshop series on printmaking and queer history. Because most of us do not grow up in LGBTQI households, connection to queer ancestors is rarely an integral part of our experience. The Queer Ancestry Project “queers” the notion of ancestry, claiming a lineage unbound by blood. The Project concludes with an exhibition at the LGBT Center that provides a powerful record of how young queer artists encounter and transform the cultures of queerness they inherit. The Alternative Exposure grant supports free access to materials, equipment, space, and instruction, and exhibition expenses.
