Global Creative Directory

Updated: Jun 13, 2021

Listen up! Are you an artist? Crafter? Music maker or booty shaker? We are searching for QUEER CREATIVES to be a part of our Global Creative Directory. This ever-growing list of visual artists, fashion designers, musicians, actors, and more is a testament to the abundance of gifts and abilities our queer community has to offer. Our goal is to connect creatives with each other, and to more audiences. Beginning with Louisiana, our directory spans from our home base in Shreveport to NYC, London, New Zealand, and beyond. If you identify as queer and would like to be a part of this directory (and history), email us at or tag us on social media. We are currently prioritizing BIPOC and TGNC+ folx. The time to assemble is now.
