At TCA, we believe in putting talent first and strive to shift the way the entertainment industry hears, sees, and feels the LGBTQIA+ community.
Since 2015, The Color Agent (TCA) has had the privilege of forecasting the new wave of mainstream talent from the Community+ by hosting an official showcase at SXSW. Past performances have included up and coming artists such as Jozzy (Columbia Records) , Silvana Imam (Grammis Award Winner), Bre-Z (Drama Series: Empire/All American), Gizzle (Grammy Nominated) and more. TCA discovers artists who are ready to showcase their artistry as an official performer on a career changing platform and has played an important role in increasing representation at the festival annually!
That’s What You Don’t Know (TWYDK) is a series that highlights artists from the Community+ that you need to know. We showcase raw talent after some pretty unique questioning that helps you discover a bit more from your new favorites! Check out some of our earlier unsigned discoveries that have proved to be the breakout artists of today:
TCA First Looks highlight the latest projects of select artists from the Community+ creating their own lane in the mainstream. We invite you to experience an all access pass behind the scenes of intimate shows & rare studio sessions. Check out some great conversations in some iconic places!
The Stage is an upcoming short documentary by TCA that breaks down the truth about LGBTQIA+ representation in the entertainment industry and how one official stage at SXSW led to amplifying the voices of artists from the Community+ in a new way while simultaneously forging some unlikely connections from around the world.
