Coming Out for Art (COFA)

This annual event hosted in Chico provides a creative outlet for the LGBTQ+ community and allies to express their feelings and attitudes around sexuality and gender. Creative artists are given a productive and positive way to express themselves and feelings in an artistic manner. The artwork is not only viewed by a large audience, but people who submit artwork have the option of selling their pieces.
