Rainbow Resilience: Overcoming LGBT Performer’s Community Challenge
Presented by Rachael Wells

The LGBTQ+ community within the adult performance industry face many challenges in and outside of their work. Marginalization, houselessness, isolation, suicide, abuse, and threats of outing are commonplace. Within the industry, many performers may feel a sense of idealization and/or devaluation, both of which are forms of fetishization. This seminar discusses and normalizes difficult feelings while discussing individual and community resources to heal these wounds.

This webinar will focus on the ways we can build and create connections through different avenues within the LGBTQ+ community while addressing relational challenges and safety issues, whether online or in person.
