Rodney "Rhoda" Clay
Rodney “Rhoda” began his theatrical career in Portland, OR impersonating Madonna at one of the city’s well known drag reviews: the Embers Night Club. During this time period he also started his charitable work by raising funds for the cities local AIDS foundation: The Cascade Aids Project. After seven years of performing, he changed courses and moved to San Francisco where he enrolled in school and received a Bachelor’s degree in writing from San Francisco State University. Inspired by Bo Hoshaw in the winter of 2010, he joined a local gay men’s writing group called GuyWriters as a playwright. Latter that year the group produced their first show for the San Francisco Fringe Festival. It was during this time that he found out just how difficult it was to find funding for a gay arts organization. From this experience the idea for the Endeavor Foundation for the Arts came to life as a means to help others achieve their artistic dreams from getting the education necessary to learn their craft to providing funds for artist to see their dreams come to life.
