Job Description

Queer Joy Collective Internship Program 2024

REMOTE OPPORTUNITY

Mission

Queer Joy Collective’s work centers on community-based resilience building through positive expression. Rather than dismantling our oppression through reactionary methods, our organization combats discrimination through transformative actions which lead to greater social change. Within a broader network of organizations dedicated to queer liberation, QJC serves as the emotional undercurrent propelling these efforts. Our programs include our Letter Club, Joy Archive, Internship Program, Art Contests, and more.

As an organization committed to diversity and inclusivity, we highly encourage applications from BIPOC, neurodivergent, formerly incarcerated, those from low-income backgrounds, and other marginalized communities.

Throughout the internship, you will receive mentorship from our founders, access to educational and career development resources, and the opportunity to expand your network of queer working professionals. Additionally, you’ll be given a free membership to our Letter Subscription for the duration of your internship.
