Real QTs: A Night of Art & Performance

get down with REAL QTs!

Real QTs is a multi-genre showcase of intersectional lgbtq performing artists that honors and reps how multitudinous and interconnected the categories “trans*” and “queer” can be. Our aim is to create a space for off-the-margins queer and trans voices that often go unheard given a general privileging of cis, white, economically-advantaged experiences.

it’s a raw/emotive/raunchy/REAL event that celebrates our many talents, experiences, and intersecting identities.

GypjaQ is a musician from Harlem with eclectic artistic express. With beats from LawlySe, GQ brings a new style, a new thought, a new groove. Call it, aNvKai.

His work has appeared in Assaracus, Wussy Magazine, and Crab Fat Magazine, as well as the collaborative zine, Doing It Mostly Wrong. On the internet he is sweet, sweet, sweeterthanspit.

 

if dionysus were an intersectional feminist performing artist/poet, then dionysus rex leonowicz would be. rex is a working class trans/queer/non-binary femme from queens, new york, now living in oakland, california. he’s obsessed with cats, life as drag, self-professed freaks, & sparkles. some of his work can be found in it’s night in san francisco, but it’s sunny in oakland, the queer south, lambda literary’s poetry spotlight, gertrude journal, shampoo, etc. he loves e-mail and new friends, so get in touch at leonowitch@gmail.com if you feel so inclined!

DEADLINE: Part 2 of Two-Part August Edition on Racism

On August 6th and 13th, curator Sabrina Chap will host a special two-part edition of Deadline focusing on racism.

Deadline asks performance artists, filmmakers, and writers to stop posting on Facebook and create new works that engage racism on some level. As at every edition of Deadline, audience members are asked to provide short, anonymous written responses to each performance as a way of providing feedback to the artists.

Part 2, on August 13th, will feature:

 

Kate Brandt – film
Jamila Reddy – performance
Sacred Walker – performance

 

Deadline is a works-in-progress series featuring new work from cutting-edge queer artists. Built on the notion that there’s no greater inspiration than a deadline, this series forces renegade artists to bring new and developing work to an audience for the first time. Part experimentation + part guaranteed failure = 100% awesomeness.Hosted by Sabrina Chap.

Interested in presenting your work in a future installment of Deadline? Fill out the form!
Artists of any kind are encouraged to submit.
