As part of an activism project for their ENG 227 class, a group of WWU students will host "Queer Voices: Performance Art Night" from 7:30-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 16 in Carver 104.
The event is free and open to the public.
"From Stonewall Riots in 1969 to the Orlando nightclub mass shooting, the queer community has faced years of oppression and, with it, many revolutions," said Casper Gemar, one of the students organizing the event. "Queer Voices: Performance Art Night is an event on campus for queer artists to showcase their stories through poetry, song, dance, spoken word, visual art, and other mediums. Our goal is to create an environment for queer people to speak about queer issues and spread awareness of the current and historical struggles we've faced."
