Black and Pink A Kiss for Gabriela

Come join us in writing letters, postcards and words of encouragement to our queer and trans family incarcerated in New York state. Writing a letter, postcard, or sending a drawing is a great way to brighten someone’s week! B & P will provide pens, paper & answer all questions. At 8:30 we will be screening an amazing film called Um Beijo para Gabriela which is Portuguese for A Kiss For Gabriela. “Gabriela Leite is the first sex worker to run for Brazilian Congress. “A Kiss for Gabriela” tells the story of her 2010 campaign as she faces 822 opponents and challenges a male dominated political system to see if a sex worker, activist, wife, mother, and cultural icon since founding the clothing line, Daspu, can beat the odds and win the election.”

 

 

Black and Pink NYC is a chapter of the national queer prison abolition group Black and Pink, dedicated to supporting our queer & trans (Gender  and/or Sexual Minority) comrades, friends, and loved ones currently incarcerated. We aim to provide support work, advocacy and direct action for folks in prison, as well as host and facilitate events in the NYC area.
