Even though it might not feel like it all of the time, we want you to know that you have an international community that loves and supports you! Here is a growing list of resources ranging from opportunities for queer artists to emergency hotlines to community-building projects. If you know of a resource that should be added please send us an email!

If you send us an email suggesting a resource and we do not respond, please know we will look at them all when we update this page and do not send multiple emails.

These resources looked promising to us when we explored them, but their inclusion here is not an endorsement. If you see a resource listed that you think is not serving our community please email us.

Opportunities of Queer Artists

The Barbara Hammer Lesbian Experimental Filmmaking Grant (annual) is awarded to self-identified lesbians for making visionary moving-image art. Work can be experimental animation, experimental documentary, experimental narrative, cross-genre, or solely experimental. Applicants must be based in the U.S. This grant was established by Hammer in 2017 to give needed support to moving-image art made by lesbians. The grant is supported directly by funds provided by Hammer’s estate and administered through Queer|Art by lesbians for lesbians, with a rotating panel of judges. The grant includes an award of $7,000. More information here.

The Queer|Art|Mentorship program nurtures exchange between LGBTQ+ artists at all levels of their careers and works against a natural segregation between generations and disciplines. They have an online Q&A on June 28th 2022! More information here.

Queer|Art is accepting applications for The Illuminations Grant for Black Trans Women Visual Artists, a $10,000 grant, that supports visual artists who are self-identified Black trans women and trans femmes.
Applications are open March 31, 2022—June 30, 2022. See more information here.

The Centre for Studies in Religion and Society (CSRS) at the University of Victoria invites applications from Indigenous graduate students, faculty, and artists. See more information here.
