Good episode? Give it some love!
With the rise of COVID-19 cases, many steps are being taken to prevent the spread and ensure people’s safety. This is leaving many people out of work and affecting their sources of income. For musicians, it is resulting in the cancellation of live events and tours, which is how many musicians generate their income. LGBTQIA musicians already face many struggles and having to cancel their main sources of income and a way that they’re able to connect with their communities is a huge blow.

During this time, Homoground hosted a virtual panel to hear from musicians in our LGBTQIA community who are being affected by COVID-19 and to discuss ways that we as a community can help each other, as well as come up with solutions to alternative ways to survive financially during this time.
