The LEATHER & LGBTQ Cultural District is compiling a roster of artists and performers who live, work, exhibit or perform in the District, or whose creative work reflects the culture of the queer, kinky and/or leather community.
Artists in all media, including performance, are urged to submit their contact information, a description of their work, and additional materials for inclusion.
Artists may choose to simply be listed by name, with basic contact information, or include either samples or links to samples or pages displaying their work. For artists submitting numerous items, we will prepare a separate page featuring their work. We will be able to present graphic or video files in all standard Web-friendly formats, subject to any technical or legal limitations. (So please submit nothing involving human trafficking or children, and nothing violating anyone else’s copyright, reputation, or privacy.)
This LEATHER & LGBTQ Cultural Catalog will be available to all visitors to our Web site (ages 18+), and we expect it will be used to recruit artists and performers for a variety of exhibitions, events, commissions and other projects. Artists are welcome and encouraged to share the link to their featured page. We believe this may be particularly useful for artists who wish to display their adult or leather-themed work separately from their other public portfolios.
Graphic artists are encouraged to take appropriate precautions (e.g. steganographic fingerprinting, watermarks, lowered resolution, etc.) to prevent the graphic samples on our Web site from undermining the value of their original artwork.
Please write to arts-chair@SFLCD.ORG to submit your information and materials, for more information, or to discuss.
