Mobile Homecoming Project, Oct 12

“Ritual Proof: Practicing Queer Black Intergenerational Love.”

Through performance and video narratives Julia Wallace and Alexis Pauline Gumbs share the LGBT/queer history they are collecting and discuss the significance of oral histories, the arts, and community building to LGBT/queer life in both the past and present.

The Mobile Homecoming Project:
Two young queer black women, Julia Wallace of Queer Renaissance and Alexis Pauline Gumbs of BrokenBeautiful Press, travel the country collecting oral histories of queer black same gender loving elders, learning about the people who have been integral in transforming the black queer movement since the 1980s or earlier, piecing together an intergenerational connection.
