We as LGBTQ+ people often talk about the importance of chosen family and it's just as significant for us as an organisation. The support of our community and allies will enable us to deliver our ambitious programme and create a much-needed cultural space for the LGBTQ+ community. As with our programme, we want to encourage an open dialogue with our supporters and will continue to listen, learn and adapt our schemes with your guidance.
We want everyone to be able to support QUEERCIRCLE in a way that is accessible for them. Our first two initatives include a £40,000 crowdfunding campaign and our Founding Patrons scheme.
Across London, we have witnessed the closure of over 50% of LGBTQ+ spaces in the last decade and the staggering loss of artist's studios.
The need for such a space has been exacerbated by the effects of COVID-19. A report into its impact on the LGBTQ+ community highlighted that 69% had shown depressive symptoms, rising to 90% among those who had experienced homophobia or transphobia.
Now more than ever, the LGBTQ+ community needs and deserves a place to come together; a safe space where we can continue to support one another, be creative, and create radical change. A space which inspires, tackles social isolation and supports our mental health and wellbeing.
Our first promise was to secure a space for the community. Whether you donate the price of a cup of coffee or join as a founding patron, your support will ensure we are able to deliver on this promise!
BECOME A PATRON
All donations above £250 to our crowdfund campaign will enjoy the benefits of our founding patrons scheme.
We're here, we're queer, and we're not going anywhere. The ongoing support of our patrons will enable us to continue to grow, develop new initiatives, and provide a reliable safe space for the community.
As with our programme, we want to encourage an open dialogue with our supporters and will continue to listen, learn and adapt our schemes with your guidance.
We would like to thank our cultural partners for their in-kind support and guidance as they continue to play a significant role in shaping and delivering our ambitious programme. We welcome interest from new partners to further our mission.
