The month of June is a time to celebrate LGBTQ communities. It’s a time to reflect on the rich history and culture of the queer community, commemorating advances made in the realm of civil liberties and beyond. This year, as the COVID-19 pandemic continues, many queer individuals are navigating greater risks to their health, safety, and livelihoods. Around the world, Pride marches and celebrations have been moved online, postponed, or canceled entirely.
Cognizant of the need to stay connected and elevate queer voices amid a climate of uncertainty, Hyperallergic is commemorating Pride Month by featuring one queer art worker per day on our website and asking them to reflect on what this time means to them. This series is meant to build on last year’s Queer Artists in Their Own Words.
We encourage queer artists, curators, arts educators, filmmakers, programmers, conservators, and administrators from across the art world to join us.
