Reba says, “You Got This !”
The icon for YGTQ+ is famed New Orleans drag queen entertainer, Reba Douglas. Reba Douglas / Arthur Severio is a YGT task force member, gay activist photographer and Drag Queen performer for more than 25 years. Growing up in the 1970s, as the son of a farmer in rural Livingston Parish, Louisiana, provided noted performer and photographer, Arthur Severio with a keen sense of the harsh realties of being different.It was here that Severio developed his skills as an outsider and an observer. Photography became his means to explore and reveal the truth of his vision. It wasn’t until the 1984 New Orleans’ World’s Fair that Severio escaped the country for the French Quarter’s exuberant gay, drag and transgender community, Arthur soon found his place and those pathfinders who fostered this community.
