Queer Women of Color Shorts Program: Beloved Community

Saturday, Apr 7, 2018 • 1:00 PM

The Paramount Center

A young queer/trans Latinx soars Home to connect with his grandma, his culture, and his identity through enchiladas. A Filipina mother and daughter duo take an uncertain journey toward acceptance in Introspection. For a young Muslim woman and her Christian friend, a benevolent Call To Prayer becomes a beacon for healing. A Love Letter to Queer Black Womyn vanquishes trauma on a journey toward healing. Bi/Black/Body/Bliss is a blazing emblem for plus-sized, queer, African/Indigenous ancestry often rejected by the world. My Femme Is A Reflection that is emblazoned with tender duty on an Asian survivor's spirit. A luminous trans Latina woman warrior reveals her bravery in La Entrevista. Running toward the feminine begins Breaking Frailty Myths and releases a Black woman's abilities. A Korean-American woman summons The Courage To Be and masterminds a plan to create her authentic self. A queer Black woman's comedic reclaiming of "crazy" and the perilous climb toward healing. Through nurturing Puerto Rican food, Marco Territorio and female masculinity come to the rescue. Three heroic queer women of color affirm mind, body, and spirit to Take Care of themselves. When the world is full of despair, the buoyant passion of Supa Gallo Pinto saves the day. While some are powerless against perception, Smokey emerges into a vision for a different world. Determined not to let anything get in her way, a daredevil queer Latina leaps over obstacles in Un Buen Dia. Queer and trans people of color transmute intimacy into Azúcar.
