Recognizing the undeniable influence of queerness on modern music, we pay tribute to iconic 20th-century queer figures like Leonard Bernstein, Samuel Barber, John Cage, Wendy Carlos, Aaron Copland, Francis Poulenc, Ethel Smith, and countless others. Their remarkable legacies have left a profound impact on audiences and history, serving as beacons of inspiration for present and future creatives. At the core of the I Exist Project's mission is the promotion and visibility of new queer repertoire—an essential endeavor that continuously empowers, educates, and fosters the inclusion of queer artists and culture within the contemporary music landscape.
