QUEER + Out in Routt
A celebration of the spectrum of identity.
Steamboat Creates is providing a safe space for community members to share their artwork in response to their personal experience with being, or being family or ally to, LGBTQIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual, and beyond). This exhibit will hang in tandem with Pivot Point: Creative Tools for Personal Empowerment workshops designed for the LGBTQIA+ community and their families to connect, empower and celebrate the diversities of sexuality and gender in Routt County. All mediums are welcome for submission!
