ABOUT CHRYSALIS / QUEER ANCESTORS PROJECT

The Queer Ancestors Project, a program of Chrysalis, is devoted to forging sturdy relationships between LGBTQI people and our ancestors. Using history as a linchpin, we build community by providing Queer and Trans artists, age 18 to 26, free interdisciplinary workshops in printmaking, writing, and Queer history. Public exhibitions and readings of their work provide a window on the past through which the larger community can glimpse our collective future.
