About The Event

The Youth Mentoring Action Network has created the LGBTQ+ Artist Series to lift up the art of young LGBTQ+ artists with young LGBTQ+ artists. Through the month of June young LGBTQ+ artists everywhere are welcomed to create and submit works of art centered around the theme of "Reimagining our World". The recent events unfolding across the nation have brought to light the injustices that our communities continually face. As youth-serving organizations, it is our duty to listen to you: young people and lift up your vision for a more just and equitable world.

As communities across the nation struggle for justice, we want to recognize our community's black LGBTQ+ and trans* identifying artists. We see you and encourage you to share your vision of a more just and equitable world through your art.

Any medium of art is acceptable including

  • A recorded song under 4 minutes
  • A high-quality image of a visual piece
  • Poems or short stories under 1,000 words

  • All submissions must be accompanied by a title and short description of the piece (under 250 words)

On July 1st one artist will be selected by a committee of LGBTQ+ Youth Artists to receive a Grand Prize of $200!

This form will collect artist name, home city, and state, as well as a means for organizers to each artist. The preferred method of art submission is via an online link. (such as an e-PDF, youtube link, or google drive) Questions or concerns with this submission method can be directed to isabella@yman.org.
