What does it mean to transform? How do our Queer lives evolve and open the way to the transformation our experiences conjure? Why is transformation necessary and how do we as a Queer community embrace the transition?

What unexpected growth do our hearts open to when we surrender to a vision of change, love, affirmation and forgiveness?

We request art that offers visibility to transformational queer stories of courage, inspiration, love, perseverance, hope, disappointment, creativity, expansion, difference and success.
