Inclusive AF

Not only do I get to learn about queer art and history, I am learning it from so many different perspectives. In the first 3 episodes, Frankie has set the tone for his vision: an LGBTQ+ artistic discussion across all ages, genders, ethnicities and disciplines.

Really appreciate the TLC he has given to this project, and the deft awareness of his limited perspectives as he searches to connect us all together through art. Can’t wait for more episodes.
