June is Pride Month, and Queercircle, an LGBTQ-led nonprofit organization, thought it was the perfect time to announce its plans to open up an LGBTQ art center right in the heart of London’s Design District. It’s now in the process of raising $56,416 on GoFundMe to make the dream a reality.
The space it has secured is a 2,800-square-foot site designed by David Kohn Architects. The vision is to create a main gallery, library, and project areas to offer LGBTQ artists a space to put on exhibits and collaborate with other artists. Queercircle also wants to provide community space to work and collaborate for other members of the LGBTQ community, including “curators, writers, thinkers, community organisers, grassroots organisations and charities,” according to the GoFundMe page.
