Showing Up for BBQueer: practices for white-bodied community members

The beauty of anti-racism is that you don’t have to pretend to be free of racism to be an anti-racist. Anti-racism is the commitment to fight racism wherever you find it, including in yourself. And it’s the only way forward.

-Ijeoma Oluo

This event is public and is facilitated explicitly for white community members. Held indoors & masked at Motion Pacific.

How can white bodied community members generate internal and shared awareness in our collective and collaborative work towards community care and liberation? Join us in exploring embodied inquiry practices for engaging and cultivating connections both at BBQueer Fest events, and an ongoing practice of anti-racism.
