Dec 9: Sister to Sister



Sister to Sister

a panel discussion with Sharon Bridgforth, Jewelle Gomez, & Lorenzo Herrera y Lozano
moderated by Eve Sandler, multimedia artist

Monday, December 9
6 pm

The Institute of African American Affairs (IAAA) at NYU presents a semester-long series of lectures, poetry readings, and film screenings with key figures, as well as emerging stars, of the LGBT intelligentsia. At a time when LGBT issues are openly being considered in mainstream consciousness, it prompts us to rethink the boundaries and conceptual paradigms surrounding the production of cultural knowledge from the perspectives of LGBT artists, scholars and activists. These conversations will be an exploration into the many LGBT narratives that examine and reveal perceptions, attitudes, continuous negotiations or renegotiations, and creative systems of survival.

20 Cooper Square, 7th Floor

Space is limited. Please RSVP to IAAA at 212-998-IAAA (4222).

For more information & updates please visit IAAA.

Jewelle Gomez is the author of seven books including the double Lambda Literary Award-winning lesbian vampire novel, The Gilda Stories. Her forthcoming comic novel, Televised, captures the 30th anniversary reunion of refugees from the Black Power student movement. Waiting for Giovanni, her play about James Baldwin, is part of a cycle entitled “Words and Music” which explores turning points in the lives of African American artists in the first part of the 20th century.

Sharon Bridgforth is a resident playwright at New Dramatists. Her current work in-progress, River See has received a 2012 MAP Fund Award and a 2012 National Performance Network Creation Fund Award. Bridgforth is the author of love conjure/blues and the Lambda Literary Award-winning the bull-jean stories. Bridgforth is co-editor of Experiments in a Jazz Aesthetic: Art, Activism, Academia, and the Austin Project.

A Queer Xicano writer of Rarámuri descent, Lorenzo Herrera y Lozano is the author of Santo de la Pata Alzada: Poems from the Queer/Xicano/Positive Pen. A member of Sandra Cisneros’ Macondo Writers Workshop, he is the editor of three queer people of color anthologies which includes Queer Codex: Chile Love. Lorenzo’s writing and thinking seeks to sit at the layered intersections that create opportunities to unpack complexities living within queer/feminist/people of color visions and values.

Co-sponsored by the NYU Center for the Study of Gender & Sexuality; the Institute of African American Affairs; and the LGBTQ Student Center.
