What Is
Queer the Lens?

Queer the Lens is a growing community of LGBTQIA+ creatives in photography and video, both on and off set.  Our mission is to empower this community by establishing an inclusive space where we can voice our needs, create connections, and share resources.


We want to do right by our community, so we created a quick 5-minute survey to learn more about what kind of support we need in order to succeed. We welcome any professional LGBTQIA+ creative working in photo/video, including photographers, producers, consultants, and crew. 

About the

Your personal information and answers will remain private and will not be shared for any reason. Data collected will be used to assess broad trends in the community and to learn what you need in order to thrive as a professional. We will share what we learn with the industry, from professional organizations to brands, and beyond to help cultivate a more inclusive industry.
