Born in South Carolina, Reid Lawrence is the owner and founder of Sickening Events. Sickening Events is a white label event management and LGBT owned ticketing platform that rivals Eventbrite, Ticketleap, ETIX, and other major companies. It helps make services accessible to local and queer artists.
As a member of the LGBT community, Reid offers their services to the queer community at an affordable price. They help make services overpriced by major corporations more accessible to local and queer artists. These services allow artists and performers to promote and market their work online.
Reid’s passion for the drag community and entrepreneurship motivated them to start their business. They believe in helping queer artists and performers by offering affordable services. This offer helps protect artists from exploitation by big corporations and makes sure they do not pay more than they have to.
Videography and Web Development
While Reid was in university, they began filming drag performers at a local gay bar. Their degree in Theatrical Production and lighting enabled them to take well-lit videos. This step made them very popular among the performers. They later monetized this and began a videography business filming drag performers at an affordable fee.
Reid observed that most drag performers and artists do not have websites because they are expensive to make, take too long to make, and do not have the skills to make one themselves. Wanting to help the drag performers, Reid created a brand explicitly designed to cater to their website and wallet needs.
Reid uses his skills in web development to create official websites for drag performers and queer artists. This step allowed them to promote and market themselves online. The websites are feature-benefit and easy to access. People can find information regarding the artist and discover their following shows and events.
Drag performers and queer artists do not have much money unless globally recognized. This fact means that they are not able to access some essential services. Reid helps them showcase their talents to the world by providing videography and web development services at an affordable price.
