Illuminate queer creatives and the causes we care about.
The ultimate goal of be part of and responsible for is to illuminate queer creatives and the causes we care about. It’s just that simple and hopefully just that easy. Bepartofandresponsiblefor.com launches with some of my original art and merchandise, inspired by works past, present, and in some cases still on the sketch pad. 20% of all the profits from each sale will go to charities focused on the queer community.
In the beginning, we will illuminate and support selected queer causes we have identified for increased awareness and support. As the site evolves into what I know it can become, additional artists will be featured with collaborative merchandise they have created as well. 20% of the profits from the sale of collaborative works will be contributed to the causes each collaborative artist chooses to bring more awareness to.
Included in the site is a living list of over 150 charities across all 50 states and the world. These are not charities we have partnered with: these are charities we have identified in all of our back yards that deserve our attention, our time, and potentially so much more. We are not a charity. We are an aspiring collective of creatives who want to support our community through the causes that already exist. We create pieces that make you smile, think, laugh, and hopefully love - wonderful pieces of art and merchandise that can find their way into your lives. Along the journey from artist and maker to your life and home, from each purchase, 20% of the profits will help the community you are already a part of and now choosing to be responsible for.
