Existence As Resistance

Two-Spirit Cultural Placeholders in Art, Activism, and Kinship
Jamie Lee Hamilton | Raven John | Tyler Alan Jacobs | Trevor Blackman-Wulff

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 de-colonial 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.

Scent Reduced:
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.
Mobility Accessibility:
This event is fully wheelchair accessible.

QAF 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 and consent.
