LGBTQIA+ Pinterest UK Creator Fund applications open

No primary category set

The first Pinterest UK Creator Fund is launching today and if you consider yourself as coming from a part of an under-represented LGBTQIA+ sector of the population you can apply to access events and funds to boost your profile.

Following its launch in the US last year, the Pinterest UK Creator Fund aims to reduce barriers of entry for creators from historically marginalised communities which Pinterest say includes Black, LGBTQIA+, Asian, and Indigenous people, as well as people with disabilities. This is to ensure they can reach new audiences and are armed with the financial and educational support to succeed.

With applications now open from today until the 19th of June 2022, this first round of UK applications will focus on LGBTQIA+ Fashion and Beauty creators. A launch event for the fund is due to be held on the 4th of July in London.
