February Artist LOFT Activity : Queering Black History Month
Monday, February 27th, 2023 | 6:30pm - 8:30pm at The LOFT
DATES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE DUE TO HOLIDAY SCEHDULE
Black History Month honors the contributions of black lives, but black queer lives are often overlooked/minimized when discussing The Civil Rights Movement or the contemporary Social Justice Movement. Queer people of color have played key roles in both the Black and LGBTQ+ movements inspiring us with examples of leadership, resilience, and bravery that have uplifted both communities. February's Artists LOFT is a special workshop designed to highlight the extraordinary contributions of our Black LGBTQ+ leaders through a creative artistic medium. Join Artist-in-Residence Sphynxx Deity as they guide the workshop participants through the process of activism through creative expression.
