What does LGBTQPOC brilliance look like?
THE 2018 BRILLIANT REPORT- 4.1.2019
Describe your image.
To commemorate a dynamic year- and mark our relaunch- we wanted a bit of brilliance. We looked for the folks who made a mark in 2018- builders, innovators, disrupters, strivers, shit-starters, and truth-tellers, the folks leading the way, holding the line, opening doors, and reaching back.
This is not a definitive list or ranking. It is a collage of brilliant change-makers in varied fields, sectors, and parts of the country (and the world), those with national profiles, and, more importantly, and others who are quietly transforming our communities. Some you already know of; all we should get to know.
You will find many entries out of Urban&Out's core markets- but also exceptional and dynamic folks from across the country, and globe, and we hope, in all of them, taken together, you will see a reflection of LGBTQ communities of color at our most diverse, intersectional, idiosyncratic, and inspirational.
