Join us for 'Erotic As Power: A Celebration of Our 20+ Year Legacy' of organizing for the liberation of Lesbian Gay Bi Two Spirit Trans & Gender Non Conforming (LGBTSTGNC) People of Color. Our organization has been committed to building collective power and expanding community wellness, progressive social, economic and racial justice work to the frontlines of NYC, and our movements. In this political moment especially we must rise up for our freedom to honor our legacy & futures of resistance & resilience.
This will be an evening of celebrating our collective power, our erotic selves, and the vision we will keep lifting up for our collective survival, featuring our fabulous co-hosts Kirya Traber & Isake Smith with DJ Zena on the 1's and 2's.
Also, performances by Brown Radical Ass Burlesque, Linda LaBeija, Egyptt; and readings by special guests Elizabeth Lorde, Rosamond King, and more.
We will also be holding a silent auction of treasures from Audre Lorde's life, generously donated by her daughter Elizabeth Lorde, check it out here.
"The erotic is a measure between the beginnings of our sense of self and the chaos of our strongest feelings. It is an internal sense of satisfaction to which, once we have experienced it, we know we can aspire. For having experienced the fullness of this depth of feeling and recognizing its power, in honor and self-respect we can require no less ourselves." - Audre Lorde Uses of the Erotic: The Erotic as Power, Sister Outsider
