Because You're Brown Honey Gurl -- Exploring Race, Desire and its Intersections with Queer Identity
What kind of people are you into? Do you have a type?
Does a person's race factor into your sexual/romantic/affectional/emotional desire towards them?
In what spaces & places do you find yourself more likely to find someone you're into?
Join us on Thursday March 28, 2013 for an evening of slam poetry and a dinner discussion on race, desire, and understanding how these facets of our lives intersect with our sexual, romantic, and gendered identities.
‘Because you’re brown honey gurl’ is a queer person of color artistic intervention in the gaystream. How do we distinguish our ways of desiring, thinking, feeling, relating, and creating from the institutions that see us as lesser than? We're not all tryna get gay married honey gurl. We're building solidarity outside those refracted beams of white light we call rainbows. And renegotiate ways of loving our bodies. Join us for an evening of poetry, discussion, and community.
