This year I served as curator of Still Here VI: Existence as Resistance to create a show made up of queer, Black folks raised in or with strong ties to San Francisco. The cast of artists are dancers, storytellers, musicians, and writers—they are all phenomenal. The one night show will provide an in-depth look at themes of being Black, Queer, and Still Here in San Francisco.
I worked in collaboration with Still Here to facilitate the first-ever ‘Write with Still Here’ series for Queer and Trans people of color with strong ties to San Francisco. Over the course of the generative writing series, Natalia Vigil and I created and facilitated original curriculum to carve out a space for our community to write and share space together. Each class was like a mini-retreat/workshop/residency. Come celebrate the lives, stories, and hard work of these phenomenal writers.
