Each year, DBQ releases their LOUD 100 List commemorating 100 LGBT individuals of color across different disciplines, ranging from music, modeling, comedy, acting, to activism. Familiar faces on the list included Frank Ocean, RuPaul, Laverne Cox, Samira Wiley, William Jackson, Jussie Smollet, among many more talented individuals. In attendance were Dominique Jackson, DaShawn Usher, Marsha Bonner, and Melvin Brown.
