Seattle QTPOC Music SceneSeattle’s QTPOC Music Scene
by Momma Nikki

October 11-14
7:00 PM

Momma Nikki will explore the challenges Queer and Trans People of Color (QTPOC) music artists face with having their voices heard and stories told, especially in mainstream music.

This is more than a debut of Momma Nikki’s documentary. This experience supports her initiative of creating space for QTPOC music artists.

What inspired you to create this documentary?
“As a QTPOC artist myself, I thought it was important to highlight other QTPOC artists in Seattle. I want Seattle to be known for more than just the first big names that come to peoples minds. Many times, QTPOC artists are overlooked, sidelined, and/or silenced. I want to help make that stop.How do you see the music scene growing for QTPOC artists in the future?
“If this documentary gives these and other QTPOC artists here in Seattle more open doors, then I’ve done my job. We have to fight for opportunities as people of color. And my hope is that venues and media here in Seattle will see that as well as others across the country.”
