Meet one of the artists, disruptors, educators, groundbreakers, innovators, and storytellers who all helped make the world a better place for LGBTQ+ people.

Vincint began their career in music at age 5 when their father, a gospel singer and “the reason I started doing music,” encouraged their talent through a church choir in Philadelphia. They came out as gay at age 16, graduated from the prestigious Berklee College of Music in 2013, and first caught the mainstream spotlight as a finalist in the 2018 season of the Fox reality singing competition The Four.

Through their own music — including their 2020 debut EP, The Feeling, and 2021 debut studio album, There Will Be Tears — Vincint found their voice as an out artist who uplifts experiences not often heard on the radio.

“I get to go out into different parts of the world and [sing] about the men I fall in love with and the things that have changed my life and turned me into the artist that I am today,” they share. “I get to see people’s faces who look like me, who have skin as dark as mine and show them that who we are is beautiful.”

Vincint’s songs have appeared on Queer Eye (“Be Me” was the fifth season’s anthem) and Love, Victor (“Mission” on season 3’s soundtrack). There Will Be Tears received a GLAAD Media Award nomination last year and even inspired a short film of the same name directed by Ryan Nordin.

In addition to these professional accomplishments, coming out as nonbinary this year to Out was a milestone for Vincint. “It’s something that has been present in my body and in my soul for a really long time, and I hadn’t had the verbiage to really articulate it to the world. And having the opportunity to sit down and fully say how I’ve been feeling for all these years is something I never thought I’d have the chance to do.” @vincint
