Join Queerly ME, in collaboration with Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust, for a LGBTQ+ photo walk led by Kyle Warnock, photographer of Queerly ME’s ongoing Queer photo documentary.
Learn how to work with a range of natural lighting and incorporate landscapes and textures into your photography. Photographers and models are both welcome, no experience necessary. This event is a free form collaboration between participants with guidance and beginner level instruction available.
Kyle Warnock (He/Him), executive director and founder of Queerly ME, has candid photographed over 300 Queer folks across Maine in the past two years. Through his work, he has documented Queerness in environments where quick adaption, communication, and connection are needed to capture the authentic joy of subjects. He has learned to utilize unpredictable outdoor environment as a tool to enhance the composition of the photos he takes.
To celebrate Pride Month this year, we’re teaming up with our friends at Queerly ME to host a four-part series of Queer and LGBTQ+ outdoor events!
Queerly ME is a Queer Centered LGBTQ+ start-up non-profit dedicated to Queer Visibility, Accessibility, and Community Connection across Maine. Established 2020, Queerly ME intends to create spaces online and offline where LGBTQ+ folks can gather and connect in safe, healing social environments. Follow them on Instagram @_queerlyme or visit their website www.queerlyme.org.
The intention of this space is to acknowledge Queerness and create a safe space to exist as Queer – anyone who supports Queerness as allies or LGBTQIA+ is also welcome. Queerly ME defines Queerness as “fluidity in one’s gender or sexuality outside of a more binary LGBT+ identity. A Queer person can identify as only Queer or choose to define themself as both Queer and other identities within the LGBTQ+ community.”
Venue: Androscoggin Woods
