WYD: Queer Hxrstories, Queer Futurities

Free with RSVP

Join us for our May session of WYD? (What’re You Doing?). WYD? Is our monthly gathering to more deeply explore what our values mean to us and to learn from our community members with similar values and practices.

This year, we are curating our monthly WYD? Installments as a space to learn from our community and local context as we dive deeper into our values. We are inviting our friends and organizations whose work we admire, to share their current research, work, or projects related to our monthly themes.

On Sunday, May 16 at 5PM PDT we will hear from ONE Archives, Cuties LA, and Transcelestial. RSVP for free to attend this session of WYD on Zoom.

We ask all participants to uphold our Braver Spaces Intentions during this gathering, please take some time to review them here.
