QUEER REBELS FEST 2017
June 30-July 1
African American Art and Culture Complex
This year Queer Rebels Fest teams up with Foglifter Journal for 2 nights of subversive performance featuring a different cast each night! Join us in celebrating queer & transgender artists of color AND our stories of resistance.
Queer Rebels returns with timely political work (Orlando, Black Lives Matter); in Trump times, we transgress, we cross, we border, we resist, we deviate! Whitewashing, both historical and present, changes Puerto Rico’s culture. A 2 Spirit infomercial provides tongue-in-cheek survival strategies. Trouble the Water asks, in a climate of police brutality and the enduring legacies of slavery, is there a place where Black people can breathe on earth? Post-Orlando, Queer Historical Mixtape reminds us that we can mend our broken places.
Queer Rebels’ Vision: Founded in late 2008 by artists KB Boyce and Celeste Chan, Queer Rebels showcases queer/trans artists of color, connects generations, and honors our histories with art for the future.
