Queer Love art competition accepting submissions
By Kelsie Leggett - Staff Reporter
The Queer Love art competition helps to shine a light on the creativity in the LGBTQ+ community.
The contest will run and be accepting art until Dec. 3.
"Our focus is on inclusion and acceptance," said Jade Chan, a leadership adviser at the Center for Leadership and Service.
This inaugural art competition was created by Patricia Kibui of the Center for Leadership and Service.
She created this competition in hopes of supporting and celebrating queer love.
Anyone, students and faculty included, is encouraged to submit art for the competition.
All forms and or media of art are accepted, from physical art like paintings or sculptures, to others like spoken word or photography etc.
Art can be submitted in two ways: you can bring in a physical copy to the third floor of Building 8 or tag @clshighine on Instagram or Facebook.
In a time where queer expression is being erased by our current political climate this arts competition is a way to stand for queer love, said Chan.
"We wanted to create a way for folks to show their support, their ally ship, or their own love," said Chan. "And what better way to show that than with art." The top three winners will receive a swag bag at the end of the competition. Art submitted will be featured on the CLS Highline Instagram and Facebook accounts.
