Prior to the QAF 2017 Two-Spirit curated festival UnSettled; on May 19th from 7-9pm, we will be partnering with the Native Education College to present a Two-Spirit panel discussion with Raven John, Tyler Alan Jacobs, Trevor Blackman-Wulff, and Jamie Lee Hamilton. We hope that this gathering can ignite further dialogue on the integration of decolonial strategies within LGBTQ2S+ organizing. Our goal for this event is to address possible roles and methods LGBTQ2S+ organizations and allies can employ to meet the needs of Two-Spirit and LGBTQ+-identified Indigenous folks.
This event is scent-reduced, Please help us keep this a welcome space for everyone and refrain from wearing scented products while attending QAF events.
Fully wheelchair accessible. If you move through space in a different way, we are ready to assist you.
The Queer Arts Festival presented by Pride in Art takes place on the traditional, unceded territory of the Coast Salish people, in particular the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səl̓ílwəta? (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. We recognize their sovereignty, as there are no treaties on these lands, and we are dedicated to building a new relationship between our Nations based on respect, reconciliation and consent.
