The "Never Look Away" mural will be located at 720 NW Davis and will expand visibility and acknowledgment of the contributions of LGBTQ+ people.

"The mural, and accompanying educational materials and activities, will educate all people about the struggles, challenges and triumphs of queer Oregonians and beyond," says the project website. "This project is telling all queer people - whether they are struggling youth, closeted adults, or even proudly out - that they are worthy. That our stories are worth investing in."

Civic Life's Graffiti Program will cover the costs of an anti-graffiti coating to the mural, the cost of the labor associated with its application, and additional work performed by Graffiti Removal Services on the project related to its preservation against tagging.
