What can leaders learn from art? In Peppermint’s view, art and entertainment play vital roles in creating change through representation and visibility. 

As parts of our nation become increasingly antagonistic toward the LGBTQ+ community, from book bans to bans on drag shows, it’s important that we as leaders learn how we can help our friends and neighbors create a safer, more loving world. We can raise our voices in many ways: voting, sharing our stories and listening to those of others, and choosing positive representations in the media.

In this week’s Motivational Mondays podcast, Peppermint, Broadway’s first out trans actress to originate a principal role, joins Corey Powell to discuss her experience in the LGBTQ+ world and to share her thoughts on our culture and how we can shape it into a more accepting one for the LGBTQ+ community.

This week, you’ll learn about Peppermint’s experience as a drag performer and trans actress, the movement of drag into mainstream media, the power of truth to fight prejudice and oppression, and the role of media and art in creating lasting change.
