This event is open to all to attend, however we will prioritize BIPOC participants if there is a capacity limit. This event will be held outdoors at the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History’s Secret Garden.
This workshop is a space to reflect on Black Queer Icons that inspired us to live out loud. We will discuss and revisit the importance of representation in Media past and present, and its impacts on our queer identities and gender performance. The workshop will conclude with us making messages to send to Black Queer Youth in the Area.
BBQueer (BLACK, BROWN, AND QUEER!) is a collaboration between three dance/art & community-centered organizations: Motion Pacific Dance (MP), Tannery World Dance and Cultural Center (TWDCC), and Gerald Casel Dance (GCD). BBQueer provides a home where the BIPOC queer community can feel seen, affirmed, included & safe; this festival is where QTBIPOC folx can share their work, celebrate their identities, & take workshops.
