A spotlight on three openly lesbian or bisexual singers who advocate for social justice and equality. Mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton uses her lively social media outlets to speak out on issues of body positivity, diet culture, and LGBTQ+ rights. Soprano and stage director Patricia Racette is one of the first internationally acclaimed American singers to publicly come out. And mezzo-soprano and author Laurie Rubin, who is blind, is also in demand as a motivational speaker.
