‘Pose’ star Jason Rodriguez forms talent agency for queer, BIPOC, trans artists

Jason Rodriguez, new face of voguing and 2021 Hollywood Critics Association TV Award nominee for Pose, and Ricardo Sebastián, Rodriguez’s longtime manager turned business partner, have announced Arraygency’s mission of bringing BIPOC, Queer and Trans people to the forefront of the industry. 

As a new agency, the duo is placing an important and specific spotlight on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion to better meet the needs of BIPOC, queer and trans creatives in the entertainment industry and ensure equal access to opportunities for all.

In a joint statement, Rodriguez and Sebastián said, “As BIPOC Queer creatives and business owners we knew we had a unique opportunity to create a specialized – and much needed – service for members of our community. We have a deep, and personal, understanding of their talents and voices and it is our hope to bring these people center stage and allow them to shine as bright as possible.”
