Queer Nightlife Talks: What makes it a party for you?
August 11, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Scensters, nightlife afficionados, El Rio patio-partiers- we want to hear from you. The Queer Nightlife Fund is kicking off a series of discussions by asking, “What makes it a party for you?”
Queer people usually find their community; we are typically not raised in it. Most of us probably remember our first time meeting other people like us at a community-based organization, a bar, a nightclub, or some other gathering. In a society that stigmatizes gender and sexual diversity, these opportunities for connection remind us that we are not alone, that we can make our own way, make friends and lovers, create our own culture.
How do we sustain this culture when we cannot convene in large groups? What is that you are seeking when you decide to attend a party? How can we replicate that within the confines that COVID-19 imposes?
The QNF is hosting a public forum to hear the diversity of perspectives from across queer communities. In keeping with our new mission, we aim to prioritize women, transgender, gender nonconforming, nonbinary, and all queer Black, Indigenous, and people of color. Everyone is welcome, and we strive for equity among the diverse voices within our community.
