Pre-Show Celebration | Post-Show Panel Conversation

Survival. Ownership. Visibility. In The House that will not Stand, young women are paired with potential suitors not out of love or desire but out of the necessity to survive. For Black queer women, wearing the visibility of one’s queerness can carry power as well as controversy in a society that shames them for who they are. Transcending that shame to step fully into one’s power can take a lifetime. Until recently, many Black queer women haven’t come out until they’re well into adulthood. What are the generational gaps between black queer women today? Join us for this pre-­show celebration with Whole Foods delicacies, then stick around for this riveting special Afterwords post-show conversation.

Public Programs are free and open to the public and do not require an RSVP. Come to one or come to all. We’d love to have you!
