Queerocracy My Penis

This month QUEEROCRACY will host a meeting that interactively attempts to map out the diverse overlapping ways in which we respond to HIV/AIDS through the use of imagery. We hope that these conversations and art-related activities facilitated throughout the night will lead us to conceive of how we can produce our own unique AIDS iconography.

Each meeting QROC will be teaming up with a new organization or individual within NYC AIDS activism to workshop with meeting attendees creative and alternative ways of participating actively in the movement to end HIV criminalization and related issues. The meetings will be hands on and will allow anyone attending to leave the meeting with a task and project at hand to stay connected and as involved as they feel comfortable and capable

The group/individual we will be workshopping with this month is: THEODORE KERR 

Canadian born Theodore Kerr, is a New York based writer, artist and organizer. He works with Visual AIDS, a non profit which supports artists living with HIV/AIDS, and uses art to tell the world that AIDS is NOT OVER.

queerocracy

QUEEROCRACY is an activist organization cultivating the leadership of queer folks and people living with HIV/AIDS in NYC. Through direct action organizing, membership led advocacy campaigns, educational trainings and political art and media we challenge and fight back against the existing structures that thrive on the punishment of positive and queer folks. QUEEROCRACY is dedicated to ending the AIDS crisis and the stigma, discrimination and criminalization that fuel its existence.
