TAC takes action for lgbtq equality
Thank you Carlie Hanson, Carlos Vara, Lauren Jauregui, CHIKA and Justin Tranter for being the featured LGBTQ+ artists on the panel. They came together to discuss how their queer identities shaped their creative work and how they use their social platforms to foster LGBTQ+ community, activism, and ally-ship.
Thank you to the bright students at Blair High School who came to learn from our experienced artists. Together with Glaad, they discussed LGBTQ+ media training and their individual power to advocate for LGBTQ+ issues online.
A special thanks to Justin D. Joseph from the Recording Academy, and Anthony Ramos from Glaad for helping us host and curate the panel.
