Queer Creator Fund

Pride is the time of year that we get to see our community shine 🌈.

We connect with our queer family through marching, dancing and gathering. And we become seen and known by the world for simply sharing our identities.

So much of Pride rests on the creative power of our community. To build events, to design marches, to write speeches, to photograph our community. 

After a year of hardship that has hit the creative industry the hardest, we want to support queer creatives getting back on their feet and becoming ready to thrive again. 

HER believes in connecting all the queers of the world and Pride is one of the most powerful ways to do that. We want to support the creative community that connects us all through art, music, dance, photography, events, club nights, theatre and all other creative forms. 🦄
