The Image Flow - Queer Conscience 2024 - 2nd Annual LGBTQ+ Juried Photography Exhibition

DEADLINE: APRIL 5, 2024 at 11:59PM. Exhibition Dates: June 8 – August 30, 2024. Juried by: Steffan Schlarb (Director of Schlomer Haus Gallery), Nathan Lomas, and The Image Flow Staff. The Image Flow invites photographic artists closely tied to the LGBTQIA2+ community to submit work to our 2nd Annual juried photography exhibition Queer Conscience 2024. It is a precarious time to be a queer person today, as many forces conspire to limit the ways in which we live and express our very identities. Despite the seemingly relentless waves of legislation targeting queer and especially transgender individuals in the U.S. and beyond, the world seems to be growing ever more queer. New studies show that nearly 30% of Gen Z adults identify as LGBTQIA2+. Queer Conscience seeks to push back against these forces and affirm our own truths through the photographic medium. In this juried exhibition set to coincide with Pride month, we ask queer artists to share their truest journeys with us, and join us in celebrating our community with a clear conscience. Eligibility: This call is open to all photographers who consider themselves members of the LGBTQIA2+ community; we absolutely cherish and love our straight friends and allies, but for this exhibit we hope to amplify queer voices. This national call for entry is open to all photographic artists living or working in the United States and its territories.
