WHAT IS “JUST. KEEP. GOING.”?
JUST. KEEP. GOING. is an initiative for all artists of the LGBTQ+ Community.
The main focus of this initiative is to have a safe place to discuss queer art, news and media topics relevant to the Queer Community, and mental health.
Every week will feature a new blog post, a new poem from yours truly (or piece from another queer poet/writer), and a “Featured Artist” post. The “Featured Artist” post will highlight someone from the community that we think you should know about. Click here to see this week’s.
The world is progressing in many ways, but there still isn’t enough representation of the LGBTQ+ Community in the arts industries, or enough safe spaces for us to be our loudest, most authentic selves. This is one of those safe spaces: a platform for us to lift each other up, celebrate each other’s work, and shine like the beautiful, flaming stars that we are.
The hope for this website is that eventually we can turn the JUST. KEEP. GOING. initiative into a nonprofit organization to support LGBTQ+ artists. Click below to find out more about JUST. KEEP. GOING. and visit the DONATE tab to help us get started.
The Goal: The goal for this site is to eventually turn JUST. KEEP. GOING. into a nonprofit organization that provides art scholarships and grants as well as affordable mental healthcare resources to members of the LGBTQ+ community. In addition to the nonprofit, A.T. hopes to eventually create a publication that highlights rising stars of the queer community.
“JUST. KEEP. GOING. Creating Change Through Queer Art.”
