Austin musician and Texas Chapter Advisor Gina Chavez will be interviewed by Texas Chapter Governor Kam Franklin (The Suffers) about her career as a genre-bending queer artist, her work with various State Department programs, and her approach to creating music in the midst of social unrest and the pandemic. The conversation will be followed by a short Q&A with the audience.

A 12-time Austin Music Award winner, Gina's NPR Tiny Desk concert has 1 million views and her hour-long national TV debut aired across the U.S. last summer. Gina’s music is a passionate collection of bilingual songs traversing cumbia, reggaeton, folk and soul which takes audiences on a journey to discover her Latin roots through music as she shares her story of life in Texas as a married, queer Catholic. Gina's band has toured as cultural ambassadors with American Music Abroad and other State Department programs in 12 countries: Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Guatemala, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Argentina, Costa Rica, Jordan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan. Gina and her wife run Niñas Arriba, a college fund they co-founded for young women in gang-dominated El Salvador. She is featured alongside Oprah, Loretta Lynn, and Beyonce in a new book by Southern Living celebrating the contributions of 100 Women in the South.
