QT Art Camp's mission is to build a hub for creative exploration and the development of artistic skills for trans and queer youth. Our programming fosters reassurance and furnishes resources for mindful artistic engagement. We strive to create inclusive communities for teens embarking on self-discovery through artistic practice. In 2021, Jesse Pallotta and Angel Glasby, two trans Brooklyn based artists, co-founded the project during the sweeping wave of anti-trans legislation targeting trans youth. For 2023, QT Art Camp will host a series of art workshops free for queer and trans youth in Brooklyn, NY. In a time where our bodies and spirits are under scrutiny and attack, sharing the power of art with trans and queer youth is more essential than ever.
