WHAT IS YOUR BREAKTHROUGH VOICE?
Jarrett Key: I think finding your voice is an important journey for everyone. I definitely am still on that journey. I’ve come a long way, though. I [found my voice] starting with church and singing in the choir and understanding that I could take up space when I was a kid in that way. Being a queer person in that environment is sort of complicated. But finding some sort of agency and satisfaction in the things that I was saying and the way that I was enjoying my performance of myself was kind of exciting.
