Faces of the Rutgers Queer Community
Monday, October 10th – Wednesday 13th
On of the most important issues we face as a community built around differing sexualities is visibility. For this project, we will be taking studio portraits of volunteers from all around Rutgers who identify as part of the queer community or an ally.
This project is being done by the executive board of The Queer Student Alliance as part of national Coming Out Day, the photographs we take will be displayed at our Coming Out Day event on October 13th.
We will be photographing in a studio space at Mason Gross School of the Arts, Room 345 on the third floor (in the back hall near the lounge and right across from the vending machines)
Time slots are available on the Facebook event, or by emailing us a email@example.com. Walk-ins are also welcome! If you would like more information about this project, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
