LGBTQIA+ Committee

The purpose of the Opera Carolina LGBTQIA Advisory Committee, is to support a nondiscrimination policy to ensure a healthier learning Opera environment for all students, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning students.

The Opera Carolina Team is committed to equal opportunity for all students and professionals in admission and access to the educational programs and professional performance opportunities, and other activities and that all programs and activities be free from discrimination, including harassment, with respect to a student’s actual or perceived sex, gender, ethnic group identification, race, national origin, religion, color, physical or mental disability, age, or sexual orientation.

In an ideal world, all LGBTQIA+ artists would be viewed equally as others. Just like their straight counterparts, LGBTQIA+ artists have stories to tell, and even if there is discrimination in the world, Opera and Art in general have always welcomed LGBTQIA artists. We want to continue this tradition with your support!
