Queer Rebels of the Harlem Renaissance
Slip back into a forbidden era. Re-imagine the Jazz age. Bawdy. Raunchy. Intellectually Stimulating!
Harlem's queer dandies meet dapper bulldaggers, sultry sirens mingle with soulful crooners; and cinematic truthtellers greet revolutionary poets in riotous splendor. Welcome to our queerest of queer Speakeasy.
From Langston's dreams deferred to the love affair of the Empress of the Blues; from La Bentley's tux and tails, to the liberating prose of Richard Bruce Nugent - this is Harlem's poetic rebellion.
Tonight, Queer Black luminaries commemorate our forgotten legacies. Tonight, we reclaim history and the urgency of our art and activism.
Celebrate Queer Harlem and join us for a glorious cabaret followed by sweet treats and libations.
Queer Rebel Productions is the creation of Kali Boyce and Celeste Chan. Our vision is to enhance the presence, visibility, and artistic excellence of new multidisciplinary work by intergenerational LGBT artists of color.
