Our goal is the liberation and prosperity of marginalized communities. We create space for the stories and experiences of queer and trans BIPOC-- individuals who are creating art for ourselves.

Join us in celebrating our 2 year anniversary!

In the past 12 months, we have reached 48,472+ of you with over 115,481+ views of our stories and content.  We are deeply grateful for the support and dedicated readership we have developed over the past two years. 

Since our inception in 2015, AFO staff has put in approximately 4,500+ hours of unpaid work to bring our readers content free of charge.As AFO is wholly committed to helping our communities thrive,we feel it is vital for staff and contributors to be compensated for the 160+ hours of intellectual, emotional, and creative labor they contribute to each issue.

If, over the past two years, you have read, followed, liked, shared, and/or loved our work, please consider contributing (any amount) or sharing with folks who may be able to. 

Your contribution will go towards:
- Staff and contributor compensation
- Website expenses
- Staff professional development
- Marketing materials
- Publishing a physical copy of Art for Ourselves
- Moving AFO in the direction of financial sustainability (either through incorporating or gaining fiscal sponsorship)
- Workshop prep/materials

If you believe in the work we are doing and want to support the voices and stories of QTBIPOC please consider donating today. 

With gratitude,
Art for Ourselves

Art for Ourselves(AFO) is an online community publication dedicated to validating and humanizing the experiences of QTBIPOC of all ages, abilities, and classes. Through sharing and celebrating stories that are often erased from mainstream narratives, we honor the experiences of marginalized communities. In doing so, we shift mindsets and facilitate understanding of how oppression manifests in our lives and how we liberate ourselves from the capitalist white supremacist-heteropatriarchy. Our monthly online issues feature accessible and timely interviews, reflections on identity and current events, self-love practices, and guides for community gatherings.
