PROUD VOICES: an audio festival
Explore the offerings of the West Village and engage with some of New York City’s brilliant queer artists in a safe way (masked up and socially distanced)! As you visit bars, stores, coffee shops and restaurants, you can access a song, poem, or auditory piece from an exclusive QR code at each participating location marked on our digital map.
Inspired by Pride’s inception at the 1969 Stonewall Riots, our inaugural PROUD VOICES will honor the legacy of the Black queer folks that led the way. All money donated by audience members will go towards three organizations that focus on social justice for the Black LGBTQIA+ community: For The Gworls, House Lives Matter and The Audre Lorde Project.
June 28th – July 12th, 2020
The Black Trans Prayer Book Release Party
The Black Trans Prayer Book: is a beyond faith and interfaith, multi-dimensional, artistic and theological work that collects the stories, poems, prayers, meditation, spells, and incantations of Black Trans & Non-Binary people. Often pushed out of Faith spaces and yet still deeply connected to a historical legacy of spiritual essentiality, Black Trans People face unprecedented amounts of spiritual, physical, and psychological violence. The Black Trans Prayer Book is a tool of healing, and affirmation centered on uplifting Black Trans & Non-Binary people and celebrating our place within faith.
What does it mean to have a faith practice that simultaneously challenges white supremacy and transphobia? Where is there a theological framework that centers the most marginalized and creates pathways towards an active spirituality moving alongside social justice? How might a spiritual practice not in tune with these questions cause harm? The #BlackTransPrayerBook, is holding these very questions.
