2019 Holiday Gift Guide

Join our 2019 Queer Holiday Gift Guide! Your work could be the perfect gift this holiday season, and we want to make sure it’s seen. Our gift guide features queer artists from around the world offering their art, writing, readings, and more.

This is not just a call for artists, but all queer creators! We want to share your queer businesses, projects, and works. It just takes a quick form telling us about yourself and your work.

We’ll be accepting submissions through our website through October 31.

And keep an eye out for holiday sales from our very own shop these coming weeks!

Submit your shop + work at bit.ly/2019GiftGuide
