Community Focused, Community Driven

Amplifying Q+ Artists while building platforms


The Fabulous Arts Foundation, originally known as the HMF. Was created fter attending the Equal Civil Rights March in D.C. where Cleve Jones gave a speech. Cleve Jones inspired our Director & Founder to create a platform where folx felt like they do have visibity and a voice in our community.  This arts and advocacy organization was created to support and inspire the LGBTQ+ community and allies through music, art, film, theatre and dance. Continuing the legacy of all of the amazing queer+ activists that helped our mission have the opportunity to thrive.
