In this series I profile artists from local LGBTQIA communities across the country. Artists who are known in their local communities are part of what makes a community vibrant. They are our touchstones for culture and memories, and influence the larger culture in ways that are difficult to pinpoint; ways that become apparent only in the distant future. In this series I attempt to give these artists a larger platform and to connect them with one another. Enjoy these profiles and remember to share them with those you love.
