Meet Our CEO
Kevin D. Anderson is the Founding Chief Executive Officer of The T.R.U.T.H. Project, Inc., an educational and community mobilization platform focusing on LGBTQ Communities of Color and allies that utilizes social art to promote mental, emotional and sexual health.
In 2009, Kevin launched heART&SOUL, a monthly non-discriminatory arts showcase for all art forms.
This merged arts space featured spoken word, dance, visual art, vocalist and actors. Kevin’s curation of heART&SOUL has led to the launch of professional careers for many artists that have graced the stage and a space for community to gather. Focusing on the preservation of the arts, Kevin ensured this space stimulated and inspired artists to focus on broadening their scope and focus on the meaning of their work.
Over the last 10 years, Kevin has mentored many of the artists that he encountered
His mentorship focuses on educating his mentees on seeing their art as an opportunity for entrepreneurship.
Since 2009, Kevin has worked with 100+ artists in Houston, Harris County and surrounding cities.
After 10 successful years and 120 community focused showcases, on February 23, 2019, Kevin made a most difficult decision and held the finale of heART&SOUL. This decision was made to allow Kevin efforts and energy to strengthen his founding non-profit, The T.R.U.T.H. Project, through program expansion and community engagement.
Inspired by heART&SOUL, Kevin sought out to create a space for LGBTQ artist and allies
Kevin created a space for them to address their personal journey by utilizing the arts in hopes of allowing others to connect and heal through their displayed art.
Created to fill the void of limited programming and support
LGBTQ+ communities of color and their allies now have the T.R.U.T.H. Project (TTP) — which has cultivated a safe space for which individuals can express themselves, and seek guidance and support, that often proves to be life transforming or even lifesaving. We envision a world where all LGBTQ+ communities live their lives free of stigma.
