What the Plus (+)

LGBTQ2S+ Group Art Exhibition and Festival in Powell River, BC

 Although LBGQT2S stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, Queer/Questioning and 2-Spirited, the plus (+) that is usually included after the initialism encompasses a list of other identities that fall under the queer umbrella.

The 2021 theme for the show and festival is “Self-Portrait”

More information on submissions coming in March 2021.


2020 was a year of introspection and self-care. We celebrate ‘the self’ this year, and encourage work that is self-reflective/self-reflexive and self-representational – in any medium and however you choose to define ‘self-portrait’.


What does it mean to you and how is it constructed? Check out this useful guide.

SEXUALITY (+ beyond)?

Roles as defined psychologically and physically over time, can shift and vary from person to person.
