A Community in Need

Do you consider yourself a member of the LGBTQ+ Community? Are you currently out of work due to the COVID-19 situation? Submit your information to be included in this list. Anyone can add their information. If you consider yourself to be a drag artist, you may want to add yourself to the Drag Artist Directory list (started by Majenta) instead, as it may be more beneficial for that area of work. Original idea by Majenta with a J in collaboration with KikiPedia. Need an edit made? Please don't re-submit; contact @KikiPaedia via social media DM: we are available on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
