? Casting Call: Queer Freedom Photoshoot!

Are you ready to be part of something historic, bold, and unapologetically queer?

We’re seeking vibrant individuals from across the Pittsburgh LGBTQIA+ and kink spectrum to star in a groundbreaking photoshoot that reimagines iconic Americana through a queer lens. This is your chance to represent the diversity and beauty of our community, while contributing to a project that celebrates our rights, our freedoms, and our identities.

We’re Looking For:

  • Individuals of all ages (18+), sizes, genders, sexual orientations, and members of the kink community.
  • People with unique styles, personalities, and stories.
  • Folks who are passionate about queer representation and activism.

No previous modeling experience required! This is all about authenticity and the diversity of our community. Whether you’re a drag queen with flair, a trans activist with a story, a non-binary artist, a leatherman or pup or anyone who feels a connection to the queer community, we want you! Photoshoot scheduled for early April. Final photos will be featured in the QBurgh Pittsburgh Pride Guide magazine!

To Apply:

Send us a brief intro about yourself, why you want to be part of this project, and a photo to casting@qburgh.com. We’re excited to hear from all corners of our community!

Let’s make queer history together and show the world the strength, beauty, and diversity of our LGBTQ Community. ?️‍?✊
