QUEER REBELS FEST 2016 features 2 separate shows: 1) Black Queer and Trans Voices, 2) LGBTQ of color histories of art and activism, and 3) THE FIGHT FOR HOME.|
Fierce drag queens dance off the Google buses of San Francisco. Black and Asian communities join forces in the struggle for racial justice, instigated by the LA Riots, Rodney Kings beating, and Tian Sheng Yus death in Oakland. A Two-spirit artist journeys in gender to find home within the self. Black Lives Matter, stretching now and into infinity with Afrofuturism. Home is displacement, a transtastic Hà Ni music video/ visual poem on the 40th anniversary of the Vit Nam War. For a Chican@ transgender teen in LA, what is home but a haunting? In Vietnamese, the word nc means water, country, nation, and homeland. To ask nc nào? is to ask, Where is your country? Where is your home?
Mission of Queer Rebels: Founded in late 2008 by artists KB Boyce and Celeste Chan, Queer Rebels showcases queer/trans artists of color, connects generations, and honors our histories with art for the future.
