Queer Women Dancers is a platform for dancers within the LGBTQ+ community who are all deserving to be recognized and heard; a space to have open and private conversations. Over the years, I have noticed that there is a great amount of underrepresentation towards queer women and non-binary dancers in the ballet industry. We ultimately need a space to be seen transparently and viewed for our authentic selves. I am hopeful that with such a platform, this will give us the opportunity to talk about the struggles and honest truths that we face together. A space to address the emotions towards feeling alone and not seen for who we truly are. We deserve to have our voices heard.
I am excited to be on this journey with you all and am hopeful for change ahead!
