ABOUTDEWAYNE QUEEN

Dewayne Queen, a native of Baltimore, MD, founded Swank Arts & Entertainment as a means to provide a space for the Black community, including Black LGBTQIA+ community and our narrative.

From 2003-2007, while living in New Orleans, LA, Dewayne served as head production assistant for the main stage during the Essence Music Festival. He was primarily responsible for handling the logistics and credentials for all the artists and celebrities who attended and performed during the celebration. In 2011, Dewayne decided to take a hiatus from production work, to step in front of the camera and explore another passion of his, acting.

Unable to stay away from production work, Dewayne has most recently worked for the main stage of the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center during the 2018 Essence Music Festival. Dewayne’s work ethic and inspiration is a direct result of working with industry professionals such as Gina Charbonnet with GeChar, Inc and Quint Davis, CEO of Festival Productions, Inc. Dewayne believes the process is never bigger than the promise. While you are working towards your promise, remember to embrace all of the lessons the process is teaching you.
