Excerpt:

Kay Ulanday Barrett, a Filipino writer who helped Salgado gather participation from many of the project’s subjects, agrees. “This project celebrates TPOC bodies and brilliance customarily erased in the LGBTQ mainstream,” they told The Advocate. “Our work and this project reminds us: migrant, black, disabled, fat, gender non-conforming, brown, and transfemme people run this shit and we must be honored daily.””

How have you been fed by your experience of loss? How can we shift our understanding of loss from something being taken from us, to something opening within us? We will recognize and celebrate the ways we embody and radiate the energy of our lost ones through our art, activism, family-making and more. Participants will be guided through creative exercises and supported in connecting with the echoes vibrating around us. Folks will leave with new connections and gathered wisdom from the group. This session centers queer and trans spectrum folks; BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Colour); and sick and/or disabled folks.
