QUEER.ARCHIVE.WORK              

Welcome to #queerPMVABF! Queer.Archive.Work (QAW) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit reading room, publishing studio, and community space on occupied Narragansett and Wampanoag land (Providence, Rhode Island, USA). We’re here to invite new folks into our community. Since starting up a year ago we’ve been hosting artists’ residencies, publishing, building our library, holding events, and creating space for queer joy. Come chat with us! We’re live on Zoom at 6–7PM ET each day of the fair plus other times (schedule in the doc). You can also e-mail anytime or type-chat in the box below, or directly into our QUEER DOC.

Our new publication QUEER MATTERS was made collectively by the QAW community and risograph printed in our studio in Providence. We’re distributing 100 copies during PMVABF. See below and/or visit our site to request a copy.
