LGBTQIA+ Opera Network

Opera America’s LGBTQIA+ Opera Network is an action group of opera professionals from all sectors of the field dedicated to advancing LGBTQIA+ equity in the industry. 

Founded in 2023, the Network responds to the rise of anti-LGBTQIA+ legislation and sentiment across the country that endangers the livelihood of opera’s artists, administrators, and audiences. The Network works to: 

  • Encourage collaboration, resource-sharing, and opportunities to support a more equitable field.  
  • Ensure LGBTQIA+ visibility and affirmation through networking and relationship-building.  
  • Create spaces for dialogue, learning, collective action, and support for LGBTQIA+ people and allies. 
Get Involved

Participation in the LGBTQIA+ Opera Network is open to anyone who identifies as LGBTQIA+ or allies affiliated with the opera industry and supportive of the Network’s goals.
