Meet Tre Floyd of Elevating Voices in Camp Creek

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tre Floyd.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Tre. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Really Jesus paid it all and all to him I owe for where I am today. Elevating Voices started as just an idea one year ago. As a black gay man, I was tired of seeing the same stereotypical gay characters in media, TV, radio and online. Everyone was either a stylist, cosmetologist, or just a flamboyant side character. None of those characters looked or acted like me so I developed elevating voices. It started as a web-series and evolved into a full production company. We now video events around Atlanta and we have a stage play touring Atlanta and surrounding areas.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Nothing worth having is ever a smooth road. There were setbacks along the way. The biggest set back was getting out of my own head and not being afraid to fail or not being afraid to take risk. Once I got going, I just learned along the way and I’m grateful that I had a good team around me to encourage me.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Elevating Voices story. Tell us more about the business.
Founded in 2018, Elevating Voices, LLC set out to bridge the gap between black LGBT males and its straight black counterparts. Through media such as web-series and stage plays, elevating voices shows the diverse lifestyles of gay men. Our characters represent authentic gay men and the stories are relatable to diverse audiences. By creating unique and entertaining storylines, Elevating Voices creates connections between gay and straight people and starts conversations to close the gap that has been filled with misconceptions and stereotypes.

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I don’t believe I have been lucky at all. I think God has definitely shown me favor and I am so grateful. Because of my sexuality and skin tone, I have been treated differently than some of my counterparts but I do not let that distract me from my mission.
