Drew Shade is Authentic, Successful, and Black AF


Award-winning journalist and industry trailblazer, Drew Shade shares how to do what you love and monetize it! Hear the behind-the-scenes story of how seeing Billy Porter in Kinky Boots was the catalyst for coming out, moving to NYC, and creating the organization of Broadway Black. Discover the importance of training, planning, flexibility, failure, and self-care—how to personally define success, present/handle your authentic self on the daily, grow a community, and create a world of equality.

Have a plan, but know that your plan is never going to be perfect enough. You have to give yourself the right opportunity. There’s nobody else that’s going to give it to you. There’s nobody else that’s going to make it happen but you.
