We got real around the following:

What are some signs to look for if you were made to be a conductor?
.
What does the creative process look like for one who was the first drag entertainer to perform on the south steps of the Texas State Capitol building (May 2012) and the Red Rock Amphitheatre stage (July 2017)?
.
What can most churches learn about the vulnerable hospitality created within the drag community?
.
What guidance did their Grandma give them that helped them to love and fully accept themselves as queer?
.
What are the unique needs of music educators in order to be sustainable professionally?
.
