One of the more endearing, necessary functions of a healthy community is the support it offers—and gosh, the queer community on Tumblr is certainly supportive and deserves to be highlighted. That’s why we gathered a handful of prominent LGBTQ+ artists and asked them what kind of advice they’ve received, and what they’d like to pass on to others.
Thank you to Nicole Ruggiero, Ludi Leiva, Freddy Rodriguez, Rubby Paulino, Patrick Church, Jerome Lamaar, Adam J. Kurtz, Antwaun Sargent, and JiaJia Fei for all of their lovely, inspiring words. And thank you to the Tumblr community. We love you.
