Nicky Scorpio loves art, expression, and storytelling. Culture and expression are the greatest gifts we have to share. He has always been a seeker and a storyteller and it was recently where he realized he needed to share his story. Behind the image is a multi-faceted complex individual.
Nicky grew up in a very unique environment. Being raised in an LGBTQ+ home and being taught about acceptance, social justice, and looking for the good in everyone, it was a shock stepping outside and seeing a very different world. On top of seeing drugs, violence, and prejudice, at a young age, Nicky learned about death, losing his father to AIDS, divorce, and what it’s like to feel like an outsider.
It would be in high school where he experienced bullying from the rich kids and learned not everyone was accepting of his upbringing that leads Nicky to fall into depression. This is where Nicky’s story would begin. His unique perspective allowed him to see the best in everyone and to use his voice and perspective as a storyteller to share and promote healing. Nicky soon learned all of these events and traumatic experiences would help him see the goodness in people and encourage others to celebrate being unique.
Nicky’s goal with music and art is to remove titles that divide people and to create conversations and art that promotes love, ethics, morals, and values for everyone.
Nicky believes that everyone should have a seat at the table and should have a fair chance to know how powerful they are naturally
