Lowpone and Crashing Through the Front Door

Lowpone is  the leading queer dance and drag show event in Indianapolis. It has built community that we have all needed as well as was the springboard for CTFD. The published book highlighted and shared stories from our community. Here is a snippet for you to enjoy.

I have been honored to be one of the first of the Wayfinder Foundations Fellows. It is because of this organization I was able to perform at the California African American Museum and was asked to write this article about the Physical and Psychological Toll of Activism
