QTAC Leadership

Tracey Fletcher

Community Director


Tracey Fletcher is a fiber artist who is passionate about up/recycling items into artful, useful objects under the name We’re A Creep. They have lived in Tallahassee since 2010 and are excited to finally be building a space they’ve wished to exist for queer artists since then. You can typically catch them and their three cats listening to podcasts while figuring out how to use roadside trash to create beautiful things.

Sampson Reichard

Networking and Youth Director


An artist, farmer, father, and pocket-sized hype man, Sampson (he/him) has spent most of his career organizing for various community projects & programs. He moved to Tallahassee in '09 after traveling most of the East Coast and eventually settled down here in Big Bend. Sampson hopes to support other Queer Artists find sustainability in their artwork by connecting them with resources & opportunities that work best for them.

Laurel Blackthorne

Executive Director


Laurel is a ceramicist and teacher who is passionate about art with feelings. They've lived in Tallahassee for their entire 'adult' life and consider it their adopted hometown. They're invested in building a supportive, inclusive, and active LGBTQIA+ artist and maker community here in Tallahassee. Laurel believes it is possible for us to build the communities we want to live in and can't wait to see what the Tallahassee artists community builds with QTAC.
