It's Pride month everyone! Lois Jane Jewellery is ran by a proud Queer Queen and supporting the greater LGBTQ+ community means alot to me.
First, some history on the Alien Girls, they started out life as fashion illustrations when I was at school. I now use them to visualise my jewellery designs on a human form. For this project I will create 50 A5 Alien Girl illustrations, each one unique and hand drawn. The money will be split 50/50 between two wonderful LGBTQ+ charities and funds. Please note: Your illustration will be selected at random, the images shown here are examples.
The Exist Loudly Fund was started by Tanya Compas who is the founder and organiser of Queer Black Christmas. The fund started with a £10,000 goal, with the aim of making tangible change for queer black people in London and digitally for a national/international audience. It's smashed all of its targets and is now sitting at over £71,800. After reaching £52,000 the fund now shares its money with 4 other amazing charities.

We provide support services, social events and develop resources so LGBT people can address the health issues that impact their lives and connect with their local communities.
