2023 Queer Conscience Photography ExhibitionThe Image Flow invites artists closely tied to the LGBTQIA2+ community to submit work to our juried photography exhibition Queer Conscience 2023.What could you do with a clear conscience? Who could you be? How could you live, free of judgement, shame, expectation, or fear?The queer experience is unlike any other, and even within our vibrant community, no two queer identities are quite alike. This is what has the power to unite us; a respect for our differences that can create bonds like a family. Living as a queer person can be complex, and frightening, and beautiful all at once.In this juried exhibition set to coincide with Pride month, we ask LGBTQIA2+ artists to share their truest queer journeys with us, and allow us to see your personal ✨queer conscience✨.Submission Deadline:  April 3, 2023, at 11:59 PMEligibilityThis call is open to all photographers who consider themselves members of the LGBTQIA2+ community; we absolutely cherish and love our straight friends and allies, but for this exhibit we hope to amplify queer voices.This national call for entry is open to all photographic artists living or working in the United States and its territories.
