Queer and Creative

by Nia Sinclair

Student, Nia is smiling at the camera.

I have been a part of the creative field almost all my life. Throughout the years, I’ve noticed that many of the people I’ve met and become close friends with have also been a part of the queer community. Since queer people often engage in the arts, there must be a reason why.

Is it because creativity happens to comes easily? Is it because the creative community is one of the few communities that will accept queer people?

I asked a couple of my friends who were part of both the queer and creative community about their journeys in relation to these parts of their identities.
