During this unprecedented time of global trauma, I hope that you are staying safe and sane. Ring of Keys is supporting our community by moving our Workshop Series into an online platform. On a positive note, this virtual setting equalizes our Workshop Series to serve all of our Members throughout the 40 cities and 3 countries that our Keys are based. I am eager to see what’s on the other side of this storm, but believe firmly that it will be a new normal, one that brings possibility and transformation.

"This was such a great experience. I’ve read Sheri’s book and have always wanted to take a class with her. Loved getting to work and play with so many awesome queers while also learning a lot to apply to my future self tapes!
-Nikki Knupp (he/him/they/them)


Sheri created a warm and inclusive space (virtually) and has so much useful knowledge about pop/rock music. I was glad to participate and I hope there are more Rock the Audition classes in the future!
-Liz Neitge (she/her)

"This workshop was exactly what I needed during this time.  I found my actor self tapping into my imagination and intuition in the journaling and collaging parts of the process. I’ve made two more Soul Collage cards since yesterday! The instructor was so kind and encouraging and it felt great to share some vulnerable truths we came across from each of our work in queer community! Loved it!
-Josephine Cooper (she/her)


I found the Soul Collage workshop to be quite personally meaningful and unlike anything I’ve experienced before. It allowed me to explore the many facets of my identity in a totally new way and I’ve been making Soul Collage cards on my own since finishing the workshop!
-Audrey Lang (she/her)


Broadway shut down on March 12th because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the next day, we created a Ring of Keys Member Relief Fund aimed to help our community directly. 

In a world where all nationwide resources are currently being tested, we determined that action is better than inaction. Before the fund was launched, we discussed and determined there were three goals for the fund:

  1. Provide aid to all Keys that applied

  2. Provide aid that is proportionate to lost wages

  3. Provide aid that is proportionate to the urgency of an applicant’s financial need

We are pleased to have provided financial assistance to 37 Keys. 

If you would like to still contribute, please donate here on our Go Fund Me page

We can't wait to get back to queering the stage together when this storm passes. 


Stay safe!
