NEON powered by GLAAD has partnered with the creative agency Queer Quarantine to release its new project “Alone Together,” which highlights how LGBTQ people of color are coping during the COVID-19 pandemic. “Alone Together” aims to express solidarity and document the times, ultimately recognizing that maintaining a sense of community and connectivity is necessary now more than ever. COVID-19 can make LGBTQ people feel lonely, scared and paranoid, but sharing our stories is the best way to counter that.

More about the project on GLAAD’s Instagram here:
In the “Alone Together” project, several LGBTQ people of color share their answers to questions about being in quarantine, ranging from “What has been a positive/beneficial habit that you’ve picked up since the quarantine?” to “What has this made you grateful for that maybe you’ve overlooked prior to this quarantine?” The goal of the project is to remind the LGBTQ community that our beauty has always been the product of resilience.
Created in 2019 by Myles E. Johnson, Queer Quarantine is a creative agency that creates content to empower and engage Black and of color Gen Z and Millennial LGBTQIA+ people.
Launched by GLAAD in February 2020, NEON is an ongoing digital content series that aims to increase the visibility of Black LGBTQ people.
