InterseXtions: Gender & Sexuality

In this paid internship, New York City LGBTQ+ teens ages 14–19 explore gender and sexuality in art through an activist lens, and work collaboratively to organize programs for other queer and trans youth.

InterseXtions teens:

  • Learn about LGBTQ+ social movements and artists working today
  • Meet educators, artists, and curators to learn about art and the Brooklyn Museum’s collections
  • Share readings and analyze issues of representation in art and media
  • Discuss topics such as feminism, sexuality, and social justice to make connections between art and our world
  • Create art expressing their own interpretation of these topics
  • Plan, organize, and promote a free, large-scale event for LGBTQ+ teens and their allies
  • Connect with community organizations and emerging artists and performers
  • Build affirming, joyful community spaces for other queer and trans youth
  • Strengthen communication, collaboration, critical thinking, advocacy, time management, and media literacy skills

Get paid $15 per hour. Second-year InterseXtions members serve as leaders in the program and are paid $16 per hour. Work up to 75 hours for the year! MetroCards will be provided.

This program is open to all NYC teens ages 14–19 who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*, two-spirit, nonbinary, gender nonconforming, questioning, queer, intersex, and/or asexual. The program will take place in person from November 2023 through June 2024.

  • Tuesdays: weekly meetings, 5–7 pm
