To Exist is To Resist

Gay City Arts presents: To Exist is To Resist
Mixed Media: spoken word, film, music, performance directed by Leah Piepzna-Samarasinha and billie rain
What would Marsha P Johnson, Leslie Feinberg and our sick and disabled queer grandparents have to say about fighting to survive and win in these times? Sick and disabled queer/ trans people have always resisted, from colonial invasion to nursing homes to freak shows to street based queer and trans activism. We are heroes, fighters and survivors and we have the medicine we need to survive Trump. In this star-studded sick and disabled QT/POC show, curated by billie rain and Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha, come witness Seattle based disabled queer/ of color artists performing new work reflecting on the resistance wisdom of our disabled queer ancestors.
