Jakmel Ekspresyon Center in Jacmel, Haiti provides local artists with space and facilities in a non-discriminatory environment. The center provides skills and resources to empower self-change and entrepreneurial spirit to local and international artists. Founded after the earthquake in 2010, JE has programs for fashion design, screen printing and workshops in dance, drumming, painting drawing, mental health, computer skills, robotics, photography and theater.
For more info go to:

Homobiles: Queer party punk supergroup singing songs about cars and babes, crimes and change, bathhouses and ballot measures. Featuring Lynn Breedlove (ex-Tribe-8 frontman and founder of Homobiles the ride service) and Stephany Joy Ashley (St. James Infirmary director) on lead vocals, Fureigh (ex-The Shondes) on guitar, storied queer festival Homo A Go Go creator Ed Varga on drums, award-winning songwriter Mya Byrne on bass, and radical healer Corrie Bennett on violin.

"They make me wish I was a homo too!" —actual quote from a straight fan

Messy Lover: this is when you accidentally use another lovers name in bed. It’s also a 3 piece band from Oakland, CA that can only agree on Britney Spears as a primary influence, though the band sounds like Nirvana doing Britney Spears covers. The singer Sparkle apparently found Sylvester at an early age, and refuses to listen to any other artist to this day. The bass player, Mel and the drummer Billy are into sexuality. Go Vegan!

Crissy Bell: Adult-Contemporary Digital Lounge Singer and Performer of Modern Music for Transsexual Hustlers and their admirers in the 2010's.

Honey Mahogany: Honey Mahogany is an international drag performer and budding recording artist. Honey initially gained worldwide fame as a cast member on season 5 of the reality television show and cult phenomenon, RuPaul’s Drag Race and has since made appearances on America’s Got Talent, American X-Factor, Logo TV’s NewNowNext Awards, and HBO’s Looking.
