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.

For information please visit our Workshops page or join our mailing list. for updates about QAP. You can also like our Facebook page and follow us on Instagram to find additional prints by QAP artists.
