InterseXtions: Gender & Sexuality

In this paid internship, New York City LGBTQ+ youth ages 14–19 explore gender and sexuality in art through an activist lens, and work collaboratively to organize programs for other queer and trans youth.

Teen staff in InterseXtions:

  • Learn about LGBTQ+ social movements and artists working today
  • Meet educators, artists, and curators to learn about art and our collections
  • Share readings and analyze issues of representation in art and media
  • Discuss topics such as feminism, sexuality, and social justice to make connections between art and our world
  • Make art expressing their own interpretation of those 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
  • Build affirming, joyful community spaces for other queer and trans youth
  • Strengthen their communication, collaboration, critical thinking, advocacy, and media literacy skills, and develop their sense of time management and responsibility

Get paid $15 per hour. Second-year InterseXtions members serve as leaders in the program and are paid $16 per hour. Work up to 75 hours for the year! Metrocards will be provided to support in-person meetings.

This program is open to all NYC teens, ages 14–19, who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*, two-spirit, nonbinary, gender nonconforming, questioning, queer, intersex, and/or asexual. The program will take place in person from November 2022 through June 2023.
