Wilson Cruz, Frenchie Davis, and Nathan Lee Graham—three artists and advocates of LGBTQ communities, who have shared stories of LGBTQ people of color through their art—engage in a special Pride Month conversation. Cruz is best known as Angel in Rent on Broadway, Rickie Vasquez on My So-Called Life, and Junito on Noah's Arc (the first network TV show revolving around queer men of color). Davis is a singer who has appeared on American Idol and The Voice and in Rent on Broadway. Graham played Todd in the Zoolander movies, and his theater credits include Priscilla: Queen of the Desert and Hit the Wall. Davis and Graham recently appeared in The View Upstairs, a musical about a 1973 fire in a gay bar in New Orleans that killed 32—the deadliest massacre of LGBTQ people in American history until the Pulse attack of a year ago. They speak with Kevin Nadal, executive director of CLAGS: The Center for LGBTQ Studies.

Presented with CLAGS: The Center for LGBTQ Studies.
