Join us for our next ACE Workshop: Drag as Therapy with Piranha!

Saturday, Oct. 26th
10AM - 12PM
Global Justice Center | 225 E 26th St

The focus of this workshop is to provide space for exploration of gender and art through drag. Piranha will guide us through the cathartic experience of creating wearable art, makeup looks, and more! We also encourage workshop attendees to bring any makeup, costumes, or other supplies they already have and would like to work with. Free makeup pallets, art and other designing supplies will be available for use during the workshop. For those seeking additional time to work, we will have access to the space until 5PM. Hope to see y'all there!

Call for Papers: Bodies of Knowledge // Re-envisioning Transgender Experience

Submission Deadline: Dec. 1, 2019
Conference: April 9th-10th, 2020
University of South Carolina Upstate

Bodies of Knowledge is a biennial LGBTQ-themed event that aims to change the conversation about LGBTQ experience in the Upstate and beyond. This year's event will focus on the politics, culture, and health issues surrounding the transgender community. Proposals for individual conference papers, panels with 3-5 conference papers, informal roundtable panels, creative presentations (e.g., poetry, spoken word, creative nonfiction, photography exhibits, other art installations), and tabling by community organizations are invited. We welcome participation from undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, and community organizers. Proposals may address topics raised by the keynoters---trans community organizing, Black transgender feminism, trans childhoods, trans theorizing about gender-markers on legal documents-or may respond more broadly to the theme of reenvisioning transgender lives, cultures, politics, media visibility, and more. 

Read the full call here. Learn more about Bodies of Knowledge and register here.
