Steven Canals of the show Pose To Speak at 3rd CCC LGBTQ+ Summit

We are thrilled to announce that Steven Canals, the Emmy nominated co-creator and co-executive producer of the groundbreaking show Pose will participate in this year’s Summit. Canal developed the pilot script for Pose in 2014 while studying at UCLA. His journey prior to working in entertainment included attending a community college and later working as an LGBT resource coordinator at two colleges. Since developing Pose, which features the largest cast of transgender people in TV history, Steven has dedicated his time to uplifting the voices of queer and trans people of color. As he shared with QQ Magazine"I’m hoping that on the heels of my success we’ll see more doors open so that more people of color, more LGBT people, and more women will have more opportunities.”
