SQ:UAD Fest is a full day of diverse programming focused on queer womxn, non-binary & trans folks
Covid-19 has forced us all to be creative in how we create and bring programming to our communities. Some of that has been challenging, but if we take anything away from this pandemic, it's that there are ways to make content much more accessible, and that's exactly what SQ:UAD Festival is doing this August 15, 2020, from 10 am -10 pm PT.
SQ:UAD stands for Spectrum of Queer: United and Diverse, and this event is exactly that from the planners to the guests. The squad behind the fest is made up of talented folx from events like San Diego Pride, ClexaCon, Sum of Us Festival, Vegas Women's Fest, SheFest and more. Their mission is "to celebrate and connect celebrate queer womxn, non-binary, and trans folks" with a focus on connection, authenticity, community, and queer joy, which sounds pretty amazing.
The day is filled with panels like "Badass Boundaries: Consent and Social Justice for Creative Projects and Interpersonal Interactions" and "BIPOC Activism, Resilience, and Excellence" plus events like a watch party for short films and even an Open Dyke Karaoke Party. It's all free and the event will have ASL interpretation.
Guests include performers like Karen Jones, KhulaRae, and Chassidy Lindsey, and speakers like GRRRL Clothing CEO, Kortney Olson, Activist Ana Laura Martinez, Trans and Disability Advocate Jess Weiner, and many more fascinating folx.
You can register for the event here and gear up for an exciting day of community, activism, and fun. See you there!
