With everyone picking up new hobbies over quarantine, embroidery in particular has really taken off. Embroidery art has a long and rich history dating back to 30,000 B.C. China, and spanning the Viking Age and Medieval Islamic world. The embroidery of today, of course, looks a lot different. Inexpensive materials and easily accessible tutorials on sites like YouTube have made it a fun, therapeutic and oftentimes lucrative hobby for anyone looking to give it a try. We’re particularly entranced by some of the great gay embroidery art out there.

Yes, some of the best modern embroidery artists are part of the LGBTQ community, and they’re making cool, fun and — above all — incredibly gay embroidery art.

We’ve rounded up some of our favorite gay embroidery art purveyors below.
