To celebrate LGBTQ History Month, the creative professional networking platform SohoMuse will launch the second in its series of "SohoMuse Presents Voices," where creatives from diverse industries come together to discuss various topics.

"SohoMuse Presents Voices" has invited creatives from a range of industries to hold powerful discussions and performances around important issues such as LGBTQ, women's rights and much more. The series aims to create a safe space for artists alike to overcome the stigmas within the entertainment industry.

"SohoMuse's mission is to be a trusted resource for creatives, and our goal through our on-going event series is to bring real topics to the forefront of these conversations and allow for a safe space where individuals can come together openly and freely," said Consuelo Vanderbilt-Costin, founder of SohoMuse. "What better way to amplify our mission than by inviting performers and artists to speak on the issues they are facing every day. My hope is to grow this series to inspire current members and also welcome newcomers to the SohoMuse family where everyone feels comfortable discussing hard-hitting matters."

Following the success of SohoMuse's first installment of the series surrounding Black Lives Matter last month, featuring Ja Rule, Vin Rock of Naughty by Nature, Isiah Thomas and others, the platform is elevating its abilities to connect creatives and provide a trusted platform for open, honest conversations.

The next installment of the series will be held on October 7th through October 10th to celebrate LGBTQ History Month. The event will be co-hosted by renowned music producer Zeke Thomas and Consuelo Vanderbilt Costin and will bring together artists, thought leaders, and academics from all walks of life to speak on their experiences with LGBTQ issues. Viewers will hear from the likes of Grammy-nominated songwriter Linda Perry in an intimate one-on-one conversation, Olympic icon Greg Louganis, broadcaster India Willoughby, Australian folk-rock singer, Jennifer Knapp and many more notables.

The ongoing series will be benefiting various charities and organizations. All proceeds from the LGBTQ event will be donated to The Ali Forney Center, The Trevor Project, GLAAD and other LGBTQ organizations.
