Queer Artist Dinner (QAD) was created in 2017 to bring together Los Angeles-based LGBTQ artists for a meal and conversation. The evening's objective is simple, to create a space for queer artists to meet as peers without the presence of curators, gallerists, and collectors. Situated within an intergenerational and diverse room of over 100 artists, the dinner serves as an informal context for individuals to meet new friends, foster meaningful connections, and make plans for the future.

Our first dinner in July 2017 welcomed over 110 local LGBT artists. The event was organized by Eve Folwer, Monica Majoli, Christopher Mangum-James, Jennifer Moon, Amir Nikravan, Paul Pescador, and Paul Mpagi Sepuya. Following its success, we are currently planning the next QAD. Our second dinner will take place at the Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena in early 2019. This year's host committee includes, Amy Adler, Lecia Dole-Recio, Nikita Gale, Monica Majoli, Christopher Mangum-James, Amir Nikravan, Paul Pescador, and Paul Mpagi Sepuya.

QAD would not be possible without the generosity of organizations and individuals like you. This year, Folcrum Arts has joined on as a fiscal sponsor for the event. As a result, all donations are fully tax-deductible. With your support we can continue to foster space for queer artists to come together, build networks, and grow our community.
