Queer Rebels: The Fight for Home

Curated by Queer Rebels (KB Boyce and Celeste Chan)
Thursday (2/18), 6:30pm, Salvage Vanguard Theater (2803 Manor Rd.)

From evictions and deportations, Diasporic longing and gentrification, we’re battling for home. Whether it is belonging within community, family, identity, culture, body, or geography – our fight for space is political!

Fierce drag queens battle the Google/Twitter/Yahoo tech buses of San Francisco. Black and Asian communities come together in the struggle for racial justice in the aftermath of the LA Riots, Rodney King’s beating, and Tian Sheng Yu’s death. A Two-spirit artist journeys in gender to find home within the self. Black Lives Matter from now to infinity with Afrofuturism. Home is displacement, a transtastic Hà Nội music video/ visual poem on the 40th anniversary of the Việt Nam War. For a Chican@ transgender teen in LA, what is home but a haunting? In Vietnamese, the word “nước” means water, country, nation, and homeland. To ask “nước nào?” is to ask, “Where is your country? Where is your home?”
