Community Bread is a queer-owned livestream & resource platform connecting audiences around the world with marginalized artists so they can easily receive donations to offset economic hardship during this global pandemic.
We offer resources on how to donate, action and support the Black Lives Matter movement as well as info on how to apply for government grants and emergency funding for artists. CB also features a schedule of queer-focused digital events and a global directory of collectives that have been elevating their local marginalized communities.
With every curated livestream, we focus on raising money for the artists as well as an organization fighting for social, political & economic justice for marginalized communities, such as The Trans Women of Color Collective, G.L.I.T.S. & ORAM. All donations are split between the artists and the organization, Community Bread does not take any of these funds.
A native NYC DJ, event producer and curator, Arthur began his journey into the underground music scene through Brooklyn’s lawless DIY spaces nearly a decade ago. Focusing on creating collaborative platforms for queer artists, he has launched events like ZODIACK, an integrated music, performance and visual experience, along with the most recent series AGENDA - a queercentric techno party with rosters of notable local and international talent. You can find him front left at events like The Carry Nation, The Bunker and Black Hole, all of which have influenced his sound.
Angela fell in love with rave at the underground industrial music stage at the Detroit Electronic Music Festival. By day she is a UX Designer, Technologist, and Co-Founder of the Brooklyn XR Studio Spa Theory. By night she is a live visualist who has thrown projections for events at NYC venues such as MoMA PS1, Palisades, Trans-Pecos, and Santo's Party House. Mostly, she prefers to fade into the dance floor. She hopes we will host a virtual reality stream in the near future.
Paul got his start in media as a 15 year-old raver in his hometown of Canberra, Australia. He would sneak out and dance all night to touring Detroit Techno DJs, writing about it afterwards for the local street press. Now based in NYC, Paul's worked as a Creative Director for The Face, Out Mag, Milk Studios, brands such as Nike and H&M and personalities such as Grimes, Charlottes Gainsbourg and Laverne Cox. He has a soft spot for indie publishing and is obsessed with Drexciya and Law and Order SVU.
