Digital Art Collection Empowers Queer & Trans Creators
SAN DIEGO, Nov. 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Meta Queens, a trailblazing community amplifying LGBTQ+ voices in the digital realm, announced its partnership with Prohibition Art, a cutting-edge generative art platform founded by Jordan Lyall.
“Meta Queens is steadfast in its mission to empower and uplift queer & trans digital artists. Our goal is to inspire, educate, and create a sanctuary where every individual feels acknowledged, celebrated, and safe including in tech.”
– Matt Arnold, Founder of Meta Queens.
“This project with Meta Queens elevates inclusivity beyond tech, into community and representation. While previous projects on Prohibition lowered tech barriers, this partnership amplifies diverse identities within the digital community. It’s more than a project; it’s a profound message of acceptance and a celebration of diversity that transcends digital artistry.”
– Jordan Lyall, Founder of Prohibition Art
“When you have different technologies like NFTs, the blockchain and more, I know as a queer, trans person, I need to be part of the conversation and learn. Including finance. The system has made this seem like it’s only for certain people to participate in, and I think that’s the most important part of all of this— participating is key, especially if we want to see systems, communities and even technologies reflect us.”
– Angelica Ross, Actress/Activist and Founder of Trans Tech Social
In a collaborative Open Call with HUG, a social marketplace that connects digital artists with art lovers, Meta Queens recently selected five international artists who designed backgrounds that will be featured in the generative art collection.
“In a shared commitment to amplifying artists from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds, HUG is thrilled to be working with MetaQueens to provide opportunities and resources for artists from the LGBTQIA+ community,” stated Debbie Soon, HUG Co-Founder & Chief Growth Officer.
