Art= is a collective of artists spanning the gender identity spectrum, as well as the globe, who are committed to helping create a better world for GLBTQ people through sales of their artwork. Upon the sale of selected artworks, each artist donates a portion of that sale directly to one of our supported charities.

You can help us help a charity in need - and beautify your home with original works of art at the same time - by taking a moment to browse our artists' works for sale.

Please visit our artists' online art stores and search the listings for "Art=". A portion, or all, of the proceeds from the sale of each Art= listed item will be donated directly to the artist's charity of choice.

You Will Rise
The mission of the You Will Rise Project is to provide a multimedia showcase for people of all ages who have been bullied to share their stories through the arts. By giving visitors the opportunity to view these creative works, we hope to educate, instill pride, generate positive feedback, and provide online resources - all for the purposes of supporting, inspiring creative productivity, fostering respect for cultural and sexual diversity, and improving the quality of life for those who have been or are currently being bullied.

BC's queer resource centre - the hub for the lesbian, gay, trans*, bi and queer community program, training and advocacy. We envision a world where all queer people are included and free from discrimination.
