Alexandria Deters

Artist - Writer - Activist - Living Archive - Researcher - Collector

Welcome to my website.  My name is Alexandria Deters and I am a queer femme embroidery artist, researcher, writer, feminist, activist, and archivist. I believe sex and sexuality is beautiful and should be celebrated, and the things we desire and are interested in have fascinated me from a young age.  I consider every human being a 'living archive' a unique individual  that has experiences and stories worth documenting and remembering.

All these elements influence my art practice and my own perspective on the world.

This site is a place for you to explore and discover my artwork, writing, research, and up to date news on what I have recently written and where to see my work.




PRIDE 2020

June 2020

Happy PRIDE 2020! To celebrate and give back I made a special work inspired by the first LGBTQAI protest, in Los Angeles, CA at Cooper Donuts in May 1959. I am selling this work for

$600 with 40% of sales being immediately donated to G.L.I.T.S. This work is at this special price only through June.

Keep it gay, keep it bright, keep it live, keep it light.
