FEMINIST BBQ # 5 - POWER TO THE QTPOC - AUGUST 26th - RED CLOVER COLLECTIVE (603 E. 30th Street) - 6pm
It’s our final bbq of the summer and it’s for women and trans* people of color only! The run-down:
ANTONIA RANDOLPH’s presentation will explore the relationships between masculinity, queerness, hip-hop, and the music industry. Hip-hop is often represented as a space of unmitigated heterosexist masculinity—what are some of the ways rappers relationships with each other (Lil’ Wayne and Birdman) and their music (Lil’ B’s “I’m Gay”) complicate this narrative?
BEAN (Sine Hwang Jensen) will delight us with her FINAL musical performance before a (hopefully brief!) hiatus. Sine is a spectacularly multi-talented multi-instrumentalist whose dream-inspired music spans genres and eludes description. Hear her for yourself!
CHELSEY KING will discuss a history of queerness in north east and southern Afrika and tensions between some forms of afro-centric thought and the reality of Black same gender loving and trans* and queer folks. What do the legacy of European colonialism, coupled with the contemporary relationship Black (specifically African American) people have with their sexuality and/or gender identities and their communities have to do with one another? How can we talk about these relationships without falling into traps set by systems of white supremacy, misogyny, and heterosexism?
As always we’ll be meeting at the Red Clover Collective to break ice & eat FREE FOOD w/ gluten free and vegan options, child care, (please rsvp if you can so we can anticipate the # of kids!) and music.
This event is closed to cis men (male assigned at birth & male identified) and white people.
