PROPSLIST: connecting the queer world.
Show us what you’re working on and find people to work with or to inspire you.
Call for: everything related to mental health advocacy
The Bumblefly Effect

The Bumblefly Effect is a social media movement that combines mental health advocacy, activism, and the creative arts to spark conversations surrounding mental health stigma.

It focuses on the importance of self-advocacy and listening to those with lived experience. The goal is to shed light on the need for more representation in both mental health & creative communities by focusing on those most marginalised.
The Bumblefly Effect has contributing artists, musicians, and creatives from over 10 different countries sharing their journeys with their mental health, along with a creation that was inspired by their experience.

We hope that by normalising these conversations we can decrease suicide rates in all communities, educate professionals about the necessity of listening to lived experiences and how they differ across cultures and identities, and improve mental health care for all people.

We accept submissions from all creatives with lived experiences of mental illness.

Looking for:

All mediums accepted (Blog coming soon, so writing submissions will be a bit delayed.)

Propslist categories explained
introducing – show us what you’re working on
This is for you if you have created something that you want other people to know about. Could be your band, your zine, an exhibition, a performance piece, your shop, a festival, a cake, a mixtape, a book you’ve published, a regular event, your group, collective or organization, etc.
skill sharing – offer your skills to help out others in their projects
This is for you if you are interested in sharing some of your skills, creativity or talents and want to learn through working with and by supporting others.
calls – you have a call and are looking for submissions
This is for you if you run a zine, a blog, a festival, have a little shop, etc. and would like for people – maybe from outside your usual bubble – to submit their work to you.
media multiplierS – you are part of or work for a media outlet
This is for you if people can pitch their ideas, projects or work to you, because you are looking for interesting things to report about and want to elevate and support queer artists.
hosts – you have a space for shows, exhibitions, djs, workshops, guests, etc.
This is for you if people can contact you, because they want to organize something in your city/location and you want to elevate and support people that might not have built up a big network of their own just yet and/or you want for yours to grow.
