The Black Lavender Experience kicks off with a Brown Pride Month convocation performance by Mangos with Chili. Founded in 2006 by Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha and Ms. Cherry Galette, Mangos with Chili is a touring cabaret of queer and trans people-of-color performance artists, offering unforgettable performance in celebration of their lives, stories, survival, and the legacies they are creating for future generations of queer and trans people-of-color. Their performance on Wednesday, April 7th at 9pm in the George Houston Bass Performing Arts Space precedes a weekend of staged readings and conversations inspired by the work of Isissa Komada-John ‘10, Andre Thompson ‘05, Ione Lloyd and E. Patrick Johnson. Click HERE for the full schedule.

Saturday, October 25th, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) the largest, mainstream gay rights lobbying organization in the country, will be having their annual gala dinner in Boston. Join radical queer activists in protesting the HRC’s transphobic, right-wing policies.
The HRC has, time and again, ignored and tokenized transpeople and supported right-wing politicians. It is time to show the HRC and the public that they do NOT represent us!
I am trying to organize a providence contingent for the protest, as part of the What Queer?! collective. If you are interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. All are welcome.
Please forward widely.
