The Institute for LGBT Studies was inspired to create an opportunity for LGBTQ+ virtual artists-in-residence after conversations with local LGBTQ+ artists and musicians who were primarily gig workers and heavily impacted by COVID-19. Artists from all mediums and backgrounds, both local and national, responded to our call. We were in awe at the response from artists and the amazingly talented individuals that applied. We originally had offered five positions, but after the massive interest from artists, we were able to extend the opportunity to 11 individuals.
