Event Description

All are welcome. This collaborative final project brings together concepts explored in our class including, survivance (survival + resistance = continuance), settler colonialism, heteropatriarchy, heteronormativity, eroticism, love, healing, and community. We have invited four amazing, creative, and knowledgeable LGBTQ2, Queer Indigenous, and Two-Spirit activists, artists, and scholars to share their stories and wisdom, and we are creating several educational resources for participants, including a resource booklet and several creative displays. We envision this event as a community dinner, an educational celebration, and a gift to our community, while it is also an intervention that serves to unsettle racism, settler colonialism, and heterosexism. Our speakers include: Jamaica Heolimeleikalani Osorio (Kānaka Maoli) She/Her/Hers Kenny Ramos (Diegueño Iipay/Kumeyaay) He/Him/His Clay River (Passamaquoddy and Mi’kmaq) They/Them/Theirs Amanda Canty (Blackfoot and Cherokee) She/Her/Hers
