    The Joy of Finding Community in an Intergenerational LGBTQIA+ Arts Program

Abstract

This article explores the potential for community building within an intergenerational, LGBTQIA+ arts workshop known as Stay Gold. I describe my personal experiences as an art educator in such an environment, as well as my journey to finding a community. I hope to become a stronger educator through self-reflection and to inspire other educators to seek out communities of their own.
