Happy Pride Month from ETC

During the month of June, we celebrate the LGBTQ+ community while also advocating for their rights. At ETC, we recognize that LGBTQ+ folks have made countless contributions to our industry and within our company. In celebration of Pride, we wanted to take a moment to highlight some of the LGBTQ+ productions in our industry.

Quinn joined ETC in 2018 with a background in marketing for K-12 and higher education. Studying English in college and tutoring writing across the curriculum fostered her passion for words and weakness for puns. When she’s not writing, she’s likely watching horror movies with her husband or plugging away at her goal of reading 50 books each year. A Wisconsin local, she loves seeing ETC products at work in Madison-area venues she has frequented throughout her life.
