WEAPONIZED CONSCIOUSNESS: Performance for Queer Resistance

Tuesday, October 17, 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

War has been declared on queer communities of color. As one of many groups under attack, POC queers are helping define a response not just about what it means to be queer, but also what it means to be American. Amidst this uncertain landscape join us for a night of spoken word, art, and performance by NYC queer poets of color who are on the front line, fighting bigotry with art. Organized by Richard Morales.
