Healing means a lot of different things and it comes in many forms. For those who belong to the LGBTQ + community, it is acceptance and understanding. For people of color, this is equal opportunity. As a gay and proud Asian-American artist, Christopher Saint knows firsthand what it is like for those who have gone through the same experiences of marginalization as him. He has been through it all and wants to help others on their journey by healing through art and business. “I think in today’s modern world we are very results oriented. For most industries, money is the primary driver, not love. I have rethought my career to refocus on how the businesses I create and grow can produce more healing in this world. Along with my art, I am currently working on spiritual wellness and online education projects for social and emotional learning. Christopher is a singer-songwriter recognized within the queer community for his mission to spread love and empowerment. He has always emphasized that everyone is made of love and that it is in their nature to express it. However, this feeling was buried in their hearts because of the fear. Hoping to make a change as a business leader, Christopher was recently named to the Forbes Next list as one of the best faces of entrepreneurship in the country.
“This new paradigm of conscious capitalism demands more responsibility and accountability. For groups that do not naturally benefit from our current economic system – women, POCs, gays and others – we must continually innovate to build new systems of structural change. I have learned that being a business leader and thought leader in media and education has given me a level of privilege. I can sit at the table because of my career to advocate for change. That being said, I would like to build a new table for people like me. Many in the LGBTQ + community are afraid to step out and be excluded from society because of their preferences. While hiding their authentic selves, they also lost the ability to love who they are, which leads to self-hatred. This is where the role of Christopher comes into play. He uses his experiences and skills to provide a way to heal those who have forgotten what it is like to truly love yourself. “Love is our birthright. As an artist, my work has been shown at film festivals around the world. I haven’t managed to be successful as an artist yet, but my measure of success is just having the opportunity to tell my own love stories. Love stories are a form of currency that has so much influence and power. I hope that through my songs, I can help others to feel seen and heard. In 2015, he founded Palette Studio LA to start a change in the world with his ideas. Because of this, he was able to help influencers, celebrities and brands tell their stories and speak their truth. It is also part of the Mostly LA angels, which helps her in her mission to lead a spiritual conversation for the LGBTQ + community. Christopher has many accomplishments under his name, whether in academia, communications or entertainment. His experience as a musician allowed him to build a solid career. “Healing can take many forms, but one of the things that I hope to continue to do as an artist and entrepreneur is to create safe spaces for communities to come together. It’s time for us to use the brightest minds and the boldest hearts to better understand how we operationalize and galvanize love in this world. The only reason we get together shouldn’t be to get rich or famous, or whatever. We should come together to foster and cultivate more love in this world. This is our goal here. Movement made in love Ia platform for artists to use their talents as a form of healing for the queer community. Community members share their stories, including the struggles they have been through, simply because of who they are. Their journey towards how they haven’t let others’ negative perceptions of their sexuality bring them down has empowered many in the LGBTQ + community.
There are many ways to heal, so Christopher is helping others in the best way he knows how. According to him, emotions are the saving grace of people. Its mission is to remind them of the love and acceptance they deserve to have through art. He delivered his message through his songs and further strengthens his influence through them. During his career as a musician he received many accolades. Among many others is the “Choice Music Video” award at OutWebFest in 2017. He also performed on the City of West Hollywood stage at LA Pride 2019. It’s there. that he flashed the message “God Loves All Of Us” on the electronic display. . This year, Christopher also wrote the campaign theme song for Revry and McDonald’s very first “House of Pride” event. The campaign visual featured a host of other queer artists, including Laganja Estranja, RuPaul’s Drag Race alum, Violet Grae and Emily Vu. “I wrote this song, ‘We’ve Got Love’ with a simple intention. Amidst the resounding wave of fear and hate in this world, I believe love can and will reverberate stronger. It was a huge honor and a historic moment that McDonald’s and Revry used the song for a global Pride Month campaign. My young self is beaming with joy! Christopher believes love is the strongest force that binds humanity together. Those who can communicate it and express it through art can arouse this emotion in many people who have lost hope of it. Once the love buried deep in their hearts is once again inflamed, people will be in the first step of the healing process.
