Queer Migrant Futures: Joy, Kinship, & Soul-Based Connection

May 21 @ 1:00 pm-2:30 pm

Love and laughter are essential to sustain our visions of futures beyond settler colonial borders. Join us on Zoom for performances of poetry, song and movement by acclaimed queer migrant artists Alan Pelaez Lopez, Yosimar Reyes and Soultree. As we journey to a place of spirit and soul-based connection where joy, care and kinship are prioritized over policies and reform, together we will open pathways to queer migrant futures. Audience Q&A with the artists will follow performances.

Featuring:
Alan Pelaez Lopez, Poet, Installation and Adornment Artist
Yosimar Reyes, Poet
Soultree, Artist, Creatrix, Connector

Moderated by:
Rosanna Simons, Sawyer Seminar Dissertation Fellow PhD candidate in Chicano/a & Central American Studies at UCLA
