Sickening Events is a white-label event management and ticketing platform founded by Reid Lawrence in 2015. It is local and queer-owned and the most trusted ticketing and video web design company. Sickening Events offers high-quality services at an affordable price to local and queer artists and venues.
Drag Videos and YouTube Subscriptions
Reid’s story is humble. They began filming drag performances at a local gay bar in college. At first, they did it to gain free entry into the club, but they turned it into a hustle upon realizing their talent and growing popularity. Reid traveled across states filming drag performers and building an enterprise of their own.
Reid uploaded the videos on YouTube for easy access. However, YouTube has many copyright restrictions, and thus they could not make money from it, despite having a large following online. It was time to think of something new.
Reid had worked with the drag community for a while. They were familiar with their needs as a community. They realized those drag performers could not access affordable online marketing and web development services. Reid turned this into an opportunity to help the queer community while making money.
Websites and Digital Marketing
Reid expanded their business from videography to include web development and event management. They helped drag performers and queer artists create official websites that allowed them to promote and market their work.
The websites contains easy-to-use features, information on the artists, photos, upcoming events by the artists, etc. Most drag performers do not have websites, as creating one is expensive and complicated. Reid helps these artists by providing their services at an affordable fee.
Reid created Sickening Events, an event management and ticketing platform catering to local and queer artists and venues. They observed that other ticketing platforms did not have the best interests of local and queer artists.
