Queer Capita Launches New Survey Examining the ‘State of the LGBTQ+ Music Industry Professional’

What does life as an LGBTQ+ professional in the music industry actually look like in 2024? That’s the question that non-profit diversity development organization Queer Capita is seeking to answer with a new survey.

The organization recently unveiled the State of the LGBTQ+ Music Industry Professional Survey, in partnership with Billboard and The Orchard. The new questionnaire asks queer workers across the industry a range of questions about identifying as LGBTQ+ in the workplace, representation for the community across the industry, diversity initiatives, necessary resources for LGBTQ+ professionals and much more.

All survey submissions will remain anonymous, with the organization providing an option for respondents to enter their email for a chance to win an Everywhere Bag from luggage brand Away. The State of the LGBTQ+ Music Industry Professional Survey is currently available to access on the organization’s website, with results set to be released at a later date.

In a statement released with the survey’s launch, Queer Capita co-president Dan Iammatteo explained that the new survey aimed to “quantify one of the most important and personal components in retaining amazing Queer professionals at music companies – sentiment,” while simultaneously helping find “actionable steps music corporations can take to strengthen their relationships with their Queer employees and clients.”

Since its founding in 2021, Queer Capita has expanded its membership to include over 400 LGBTQ+ music industry professionals from more than 150 different companies. The organization regularly hosts development workshops, mentorship programs and mixers for their members.

The survey can be taken on Queer Capita’s website until May 22.
