InterseXtions: Gender & Sexuality

In this paid internship, join other NYC LGBTQ+ teens to explore gender and sexuality in art, through a lens of race, class, culture, religion, nationality, and language. Work collaboratively to plan events for other LGBTQ+ youth. Have fun, explore the arts, express yourself and your identity!

  • Make art and resources expressing your own interpretation of these topics
  • Dream up, organize, and promote a free, large-scale event for LGBTQ+ teens and their allies
  • Communicate with community organizations and emerging artists and performers
  • Assist with other Teen Events and programs, such as teen activities during Target First Saturdays
  • Build your communication, critical thinking, media, and visual literacy skills
  • Strengthen your sense of teamwork, time management, and responsibility
