Welcome to the Pacific Northwest Museum of Queer Art
As the first of its kind in the Pacific Northwest, our museum is more than a space—it's a movement. Rooted in North Portland, we are a mobile museum on a mission to repair and reconnect communities fractured by divisive infrastructure, leveraging the transformative power of queer art, culture, and inclusivity.
Art spaces that celebrate the LGBTQ+ community are not just rare—they're practically nonexistent in our region. The Pacific Northwest Museum of Queer Art aims to serve as a beacon of hope and understanding, empowering individuals across the spectrum of backgrounds and identities to come together, appreciate art, and foster meaningful conversations that catalyze social change.
We are committed to:
- Conducting comprehensive research to examine how land use and transportation affect our community.
- Encouraging meaningful public participation by involving community-based organizations, ensuring our development is both inclusive and representative.
- Mobilizing public support while implementing strategies to prevent displacement, thereby fostering a community-led approach to all decision-making processes.
- Partnering with a diverse array of stakeholders, from local governments to curatorial advocates and housing non-profits, to amplify the impact we can have together.
How You Can Get Involved
We are in the crucial fundraising stage to make a permanent physical location possible. Your financial support will contribute to our services, programming, and long-term sustainability. Every dollar counts in creating a space where art and culture catalyze community healing and unity.
