QUEER MART Arts & Crafts Festival for LGBTQ & Allies
May 3, 2014
The Westcott Community Center
4:30 - 7:30 pm
CNY For Solidarity announces the second-ever QueerMart arts and craft fair event taking place at Westcott Community Center on May 3, 2014 from 4:30- 7:30pm. The event is a project of CNY for Solidarity, a recently formed non-profit focused on promoting and advocating underserved segments of the LGBTQ community, with an emphasis on the intersectionality of racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and other forms of oppression. QueerMart was conceived by members of CNY for Solidarity during their planning for last year’s Transgender Day of Remembrance event in Syracuse. Originally focused on youth involvement, the event has expanded to serve as a social event and marketplace for artists and craftspeople of all ages in the local LGBTQ community, as well as their allies.
“We are doing another one because the first QueerMart was successful and there’s a real need for more events of this kind in our community,” said Elliott Deline, one of the group’s co-founders, “People seem to be really excited about it.”
Vendors at the event will be offering a variety of products ranging from handmade gifts, paintings, prints, knitted accessories, soap, baskets, and books. This spring’s QueerMart will feature several new artists, as well as returning vendors from the original event. One such vendor is Button-Back Bowties – who offer colorful handmade “4-in-1” bowties. “I sold more bowties there than any other craft fair, and it’s a great group of people,” said Jourdan Lord, the company’s sole proprietor.
