ABOUT THE ARTISTS
LEGACY: A BLACK QUEER PRODUCTION COLLECTIVE We are a group of Black queer artists based in NYC. LEGACY collectivized in response to deep-seated under-appreciation, undervaluing and underfunding of Black queer art. LEGACY focuses on uplifting Black queer voices and experiences by: creating space for artistic endeavors, providing equitable compensation for time and work and fostering fellowship and opportunity for our communities, both present and future.
