Do LGBT audiences see themselves reflected on stage during traditional arts performances? What motivates LGBT immigrant artists to perpetuate traditional art forms in their new home? What vital, ongoing traditions have queer communities created for ourselves?
Join Fresh Meat Productions and the Queer Cultural Center for a dynamic panel discussion exploring the relationship of community traditions to LGBT art and culture. We’ll explore the significance of queers engaging in, preserving and interpreting traditional arts as well as the vital, ongoing queer community traditions that developed in the Bay Area after the closet collapsed. Moderated by Greg Day with panelists including Patrick Makuakane (Director, Na- Lei Hulu I Ka Wekiu), Ian Enriquez (Director, Barbary Coast Cloggers) and Adriana Sanchez and Maribel Rodriguez (Columbian Soul).
Queer Traditions is presented by Fresh Meat Productions, the Queer Cultural Center and the Alliance for California Traditional Arts, and is a featured part of the National Queer Arts Festival and an official event of San Francisco Pride.
