“In effect, we live in a legal, social, and institutional world where the only relations possible are extremely few, extremely simplified, and extremely poor. There is, of course, the relation of marriage, and the relations of family, but how many other relations should exist…!” -Michel Foucault

March 11 & 12: Brother to Brother, Sister to Sister

Brother to Brother, Sister to Sister

a series celebrating the works of LGBT artists

Tuesday & Wednesday, March 11 & 12

IAAA (Institute of African American Affairs) at New York University continues the year-long series on 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.

Events are free and open to the public. Please RSVP as indicated below.

Tuesday, March 11
7:30 pm

A conversation with Janet Mock and Laverne Cox.
