LGBTQ+ Emerging Artist Award

presented by

Citi is a long-standing supporter of the LGBTQ+ community and building an inclusive culture for communities across the globe. As the world recovers from the long-term effects of COVID-19, it’s especially vital to champion diverse voices in all communities, and help enable their growth and progress

We know that being seen and heard is the beginning of everything. That’s why Citi supported the LGBTQ+ Emerging Artist Award, which launched in June 2021 in honor of self-expression, and the thousands of customers who have updated their chosen first name on their eligible Citi-branded consumer credit and debit cards to match who they are. The Award provided 15 outstanding emerging LGBTQ+ music artists with $10,000 each to help support their creative journeys.
