Communal Altar to Queer Safety and Home

Our altar project grew from the idea of using the birdcage as a metaphor for home, safety, freedom, and spirituality. We used the question “what do you bring to the altar?” as a guide to build our community altar and shared space. We included narratives and close-up photos of each of our individual contributions to highlight the diversity of each of our stories and interpretations of the prompt.
