Born in Kalamazoo, Michigan, Jake was always told they were “over the top” and “campy”. It wasn’t until they created their performance alter ego, Vogds, that they dove straight in and embraced their campy-over-the-top-ness.
As an artist at heart, it wasn’t hard for them to become a revolutionary visual artist and build a following in Chicago, IL. Writing, producing and learning to master their own songs, the sky is the limit for this multi-faceted artist. In addition to being an artist, they also act and are a fashion designer. Together with Sky Cubacub and Compton Q they form The Radical Visibility Collective, which makes Intersectional Future-Fashion Accessible to All.
Vogds can be described as “a pop queer futurist singer-songwriter-producer and multidisciplinary artist.” Learn what makes Vogds so unique in the Season 3 premiere of Uncensored Visionary: A LGBTQ Podcast.
