Queerativity showcases a variety of diverse artwork every week. From poetry and digital art, to monologues and embroidery, Queerativity seeks to be an encouraging and safe platform that celebrates and amplifies the voices of LGBTQ+ people.
We accept all types of art that express Queer themes or something symbolic of your experience as a member of the LGBTQ+ community. Get involved. Do you have some art you’d like to share? Don’t hesitate to reach out and complete the form below.
Queerativity also strive to host frequent LGBTQ+ Events. You can see any upcoming events we have, and reviews from past events, here.
Queerativity is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to become a social enterprise / community interest company (CIC) once we have a team established. If you are interested in joining our team, please email [email protected]
LGBTQ+ Art is the heart of Queerativity. We strive to create an inclusive, non-judgmental, and safe space for Queer Artists to promote their work. Any way you feel we can make your web experience on Queerativity more inclusive, please email us at [email protected]
Sustainability is a key factor in our Queerativity events, especially our in-person ones. Any equipment or apparatus required, we source second-hand or from sustainable suppliers. A prime focus for our in-person events is to ensure minimal environmental impact, including reducing any possible waste, encouraging attendees – if they can – to walk/cycle/use public transport to attend our events, and ensuring any Queerativity owned event decor is reusable.
Accessibility is extremely important to Queerativity when conducting events. Our LGBTQ+ Monologues Evening was BSL Interpreted, and all our online events are ticketed through a “pay-what-you-can” or donation basis. We strive to be as transparent as possible with relevant event information and always put our attendees and performers – if applicable – first.
Supporting small businesses, especially small LGBTQ+ run businesses, is another key pillar of Queerativity’s values. Including featuring LGBTQ+ companies on the Queerativity site, we also ensure to collaborate with small businesses when organising our events. We also promote these businesses through our frequent joint Instagram Lives by facilitating a conversation and encouraging followers to ask any questions.
My name is Heather Rose and I am a Queer Events Manager and LGBTQ+ Arts Facilitator. I hope that Queerativity will encourage creators to share work that would otherwise go unpublished and unseen. I also hope that this will will help artists to generate completely new creations: ones that are inspired by LGBTQ+ experiences.
Hopefully you can find a piece of you in some art, or maybe create something yourself.
I would like to thank my best friend Andrew Barron for his help with setting up this website and answering hundreds of trivial questions through the site’s preparation and maintenance. And I’d like to thank you, whoever you are, for reading this and supporting a super important cause.
