THE QUEER ANCESTORS PROJECT
The Queer Ancestors Project is devoted to forging sturdy relationships between LGBTQI people and our ancestors. Using history as a linchpin, we build community by providing Queer and Trans artists, age 18 to 26, free interdisciplinary workshops in printmaking, writing, and Queer history. Public exhibitions and readings of their work provide a window on the past through which the larger community can glimpse our collective future.
Our programs are generously supported by the California Arts Council, San Francisco Arts Commission, San Francisco Grants for the Arts, Alliance for California Traditional Arts, Queer Cultural Center, SOMArts, STRUT, Chrysalis Studio, & Yerba Buena Center for the Arts
