Tell Your Oklahoma Senator To Pass The Equality Act

Discrimination is still commonplace for LGBTQ+ Americans. Opponents of LGBTQ+ equality continue to file discriminatory bills in states across the country in an attempt to undermine existing protections in adoption, marriage, and access to basic public services and businesses. The Equality Act would ensure that all LGBTQ+ Americans can live, work, and access public spaces free from discrimination, no matter what state they call home. 

The nonpartisan Public Religion Research Institute recently found that national support for the Equality Act is around 83 percent. This is the strongest level of support the bill has ever seen.  We must tell lawmakers that now is the time to pass this legislation.

Take action today by contacting your Senator by email or phone. It's so simple - just a few clicks will get it done. You can even record a 30-second video!  Click below and follow the prompts:
OKEQ Membership Focus Group: Voting Bylaws Change Proposal
Thursday, February 25, 2021, 6:00 p.m. via Zoom

You are invited to provide needed and necessary community feedback regarding a proposed amendment to the OkEq bylaws, regarding how the organization currently elects the OkEq Board of Directors. Presently, OkEq bylaws require that the Board of Directors be elected by popular vote of its members in good standing. Participants must be a member in good standing with their $50.00 donation membership current with Oklahomans for Equality.

OkEq is seeking to implement current best practices for an LGBTQ+ community organization of its size, based on feedback from national and local LGBTQ+ leadership organizations, guidance from Oklahoma nonprofits and other local leadership and fundraising organizations, and move the OkEq Board of Directors to a succession board. This would mean that the OkEq Board of Directors would, annually, with the advice and recommendations from our constituency, self-nominate the successor Directors to fulfill all the terms and conditions of a Director for the organization. This is a major change in organizational policy and OkEq needs community feedback prior to voting on this issue. Please join us and make your voice heard.

Live Streamed via Facebook

Monique was raised in Oklahoma, and fitness has been her passion ever since she can remember. She holds a degree in Exercise Physiology from the University of Oklahoma, and she has been training some of Tulsa’s finest for the past 20 years. Eight years ago, she and her wife Joy opened a private fitness studio, Physiques by Monique. They have an 18-year-old son and an 8-year-old English Bulldog.

The March Allie Jensen Memorial Art Gallery 
will feature Audrey Byrd:
 “The Divine Feminine”

“My bold colors and textures act to accentuate the femininity that is often so harshly judged and censored by the public eye. My main goal as a painter is to help people fall in love with their beauty and recognize their divinity. I use all reclaimed + repurposed canvases, frames, and miscellaneous oddities to create my pieces to be as sustainable (and unique) as possible. I love manipulating my supplies to create one-of-a-kind paintings and sculptures that leave my viewers thinking, “how did she do that?” and inspire them to try creating their own masterpieces.”

“I am a native Tulsan in my second year of medical school at OSU-COM, with hopes of becoming an obstetrician and gynecologist. I have always been an artist of sorts, mainly photography and 2-D art, but I picked up painting in March of 2020 when COVID restrictions began. Now, it has blossomed into a full-blown business that helps me make the most of my study breaks. A lot of what I hope to embody in my medical practice is reflected in my art – that women deserve to feel sexy and powerful and worthy; that they deserve to celebrate their beauty and feel empowered in their skin. I want to use color and texture to accentuate the parts of femininity that I sometimes struggle to appreciate about myself. More than anything, my work has helped me accept my beauty and power and helps me feel confident enough to empower other women in my professional life. I hope to incorporate creativity and artistry into my medical career to inspire change in the world of medicine.” - Audrey Byrd

The show opens at the Dennis R. Neill Equality Center located at 621 E. 4th Street Tulsa OK 74120 on Thursday, March 4th, with Covid measures in place. The show continues throughout the month. For more information, please visit www.okeq.org.

The February Exhibition
in the Allie Jensen Memorial Art Gallery featuring
Alexander Tamahn: “Antivenom”

My Blackness and Queerness enter the same rooms I do, as is true for many men who present as Black and self-identify as members of the LGBTQAI+ community. To create this series of work, I sat down and spoke candidly with several peers who exist at this intersection. I created work grounded in these experiences that allowed these men (and myself) to share authentic, personal truths about the challenges and triumphs of being Black, Queer, and male. No single identity supersedes the other, yet we exist—we thrive—in a world that seeks to pigeonhole us, often relegating us to small confines of an imposed identity we must ultimately shed to grow beyond such limitations. 
 
Serpents are creatures demonized and vilified in western culture. So are Black men. Although we often project our own emotions and ideas on animals and use science to support our claims that we are more enlightened and cognitively advanced than all other creatures, many indigenous cultures and eastern philosophies implore us not to lord ourselves over all creation but rather learn, protect, and respect creatures beyond ourselves. This series of works incorporate subtle and overt serpentine motifs to draw the connection be them and us.
 
Contrary to many beliefs in the west, snakes are not, in fact, slimy. And while many believe they are only capable of acting upon instinct, they are social creatures to certain extents—not unlike us. They have been known to coordinate with one another to increase the likelihood of success in hunting and developing meaningful social bonds with one another. Like us, they’re selective about who they bond with. My goal, however, is not entirely to humanize these misunderstood creatures. I instead consider several idiosyncrasies of their behaviors and the correlations therein with our own—particularly the shedding of skin. 
 
Molting or ecdysis is a special and unique process for serpents to undergo. They are arguably at their most vulnerable when engaging in this process. What’s more, this process helps them remove harmful parasites that could kill them. While there are several complexities to this process and corresponding variables that deeply impact it, one thing remains true; they must complete it to become and/or remain healthy. 
 
Through this series, I assert that the men I held space for (myself included) must do the same to become and/or remain healthy. Identities placed upon us by society—by our own family, friends, etc. must be shed. When we no longer subscribe to them, we inherently subscribe less and less to toxic masculinity as it has long been normalized and codified into socially acceptable behaviors.
 
Portraiture and critical use of blue and pink hues that allude to masculine and feminine binaries are prevalent throughout this series. Many compositions include statements by the subjects themselves to amplify their truths oriented so that audiences must crane their necks to and fro—they must physically change their perspective to engage with them. Much like antivenom, exposure to the toxins is necessary… The show’s namesake was selected because this work is ultimately about binding and neutralizing the venom that is toxic-masculinity.

The show is currently open at the Dennis R. Neill Equality Center located at 621 E. 4th Street Tulsa OK 74120, with Covid measures in place. The show continues throughout the month.
