CALL FOR ART: First Annual Pride Zine

Tidal Artist Haven is creating an electronic zine for Pride month to show that the 2SLGBTQIA+ community can still celebrate our victories and fight for our rights even if without a parade. Choose works that celebrate your gender and/or sexuality; advocate for equality for marginalized groups at home and abroad; reimagine a world or future without homophobia/queerphobia/transphobia; share with future generations how we held our communities together during a global pandemic; or all of the above! We are especially interested in work from queer and trans people of color!
