The Queerantine Project – Call for Submissions
Hosted by The ArQuives
The ArQuives is looking to document and archive the LGBTQ2+ community’s experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic. We would like to document this catastrophic event so that future generations can learn about the ways it has impacted our communities.
We are inviting LGBTQ2+ folks to donate materials for our Queerantine Project. We are currently only accepting digital-born content, such as your personal photos (ie. selfies with masks, zoom images, etc.), journal entries, poetry, short videos, audio files, letters/emails, obituaries, and artwork. We are also accepting screenshots of webpages depicting LGBTQ2+ activities and events related to COVID-19.
We are especially interested in submissions from the more acutely marginalized groups within the larger LGBTQ2+ community (ie. Black, Indigenous, people of colour, trans, gender non-conforming, disabled folks, folks experiencing poverty, and/or lack of housing).
