Team Pick: Celebrate Kaylah’s Face, Queer Art


Carmen’s Team Pick:

Hi, do you love Kaylah? Maybe you’ve heard of her. She’s a former Autostraddle mod, current A-Camp Dance Team Coordinator, long-time #SlutShack member, and all-around amazing person. And now she’s a muse! And the best part? The one and only and totally amazing A-Camper Alex Ross made some amazing art utilizing Kaylah’s beautiful face and it was selected to be the actual face of the Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art’s fourth annual pride exhibition: Yaass! A Celebration of Pride and Diversity.

That’s right. Kaylah’s face is the official face of a queer art exhibition stacked with badass queer artists including Chelsea Barg, Shannon Lester, and Shelley Penner, among others. And you can admire her own face and other amazing pieces of queer art all month long for FREE! at the gallery and ring in the pride celebration tonight at their launch party.

I honestly don’t know what you’re waiting for. Let’s all fly out to British Columbia immediately and witness this testament to Kaylah’s beauty, yes? Okay, see you there.

Before you go! 99.9% of our readers don't support Autostraddle. Still, it takes funding to keep this indie queer publication running every day. And the majority of our funding comes from readers like you. That's less than 1% of our readers who keep Autostraddle around for EVERYBODY. Will you join them?

    I’d like to thank my mother for blessing me with this cunty mug, Wet n Wild for having incredible eyebrow pencils for 93 cents, Hot Topic for their perfect sunglasses for which I’m constantly looking salty in, and most of all Alex Ross for making my dreams come true!!
