The Queenly NFT, 1st Cryptogallery for Queer Creators
Hands in Position by Maxwell Poth
The Queenly NFTis the first cryptogallery for queer creators with an incredibly talented and diverse initial roster of artists. The NFT Collection includes a range of unique pieces (over 90 in total) which will primarily be sold via auction (there is also a social impact component with each artist designating a queer charity to receive 5 percent of sales from their collections), according to a release. Artists include prolific photographers Lola Flash (based in NYC, her work was just added to MoMA's permanent collection), Wilsonmodels (one of NYC's top nightlife photographers), Greg Salvatori (Provincetown) and LA-based Maxwell Poth (who's photographed people including Ricky Martin, Tan France, Adam Lambert, and Kehlani for our April/May cover); trailblazing drag queens like RuPaul's Drag Race S8 winner Bob the Drag Queen (LA), Drag Race S9 runner-up Peppermint (NYC), and 2-time Drag Race AllStars competitor Manila Luzon (LA); NYC-based transgender singer/songwriter & activist Mila Jam (who's performed with artists like James Brown, Mark Ronson & Natasha Bedingfield); Palm Springs-based painter David Jester (whose calming works feature swimming pools, exploring the abstract shapes in water environments inspired by the struggles of the LGBTQ community); NYC-based artist & illustrator Justin T. Russo (whose work ranges from portraiture to caricature, drawings and oil-based paintings); Provincetown-based multidisciplinary artist Gaston Lacombe (whose works are recognizable by bold motifs & explosive colors); and NYC-based LGBTQ activist Eugene Lovendusky.
The Queenly NFT goes live on June 15. Learn more on the website.
