Queerantine Television Premiere Hosted by Ricky Rosé
March 27 at 9:30 pm - 10:00 pm EDT
The current pandemic situation has led to the suspended operations of most of the venues for our queer performance artists. Many of these artists are now in self-isolation without venues to perform or a source of income. Trade has been creating platforms to get our artists on virtual stages. Queerantine Television is one of those efforts.
In our first episode of QTV, DC Drag King, Ricky Rosé, curated and hosted with a focus on some of their favorite AFAB (Assigned Female at Birth) and POC (Persons of Color) performers. Self-isolation is not suppressing their creativity and you’ll see that in this first episode featuring Leo Amante, Sweet Pickles, Div0id, Ms. Uju Betta, Kunj and Braworst. We’ll post the link to the first episode here on Facebook at 9:30 PM on Friday, March 27.
Trade has created a crowdfunded central donation pool to help distribute some relief to queer artists effected by pandemic-related closures. You can donate to this fund at Venmo @DonateQAC. You can also individual virtually donate to/tip each of the individual artists at anytime. These are there virtual payment methods:
Ricky Rosé – Venmo – @rickyyrosee
Leo Amante – Venmo – @carolyn-collado

Div0id – Venmo – @div0id (it’s a zero not an “O”)
