A Call for Intergenerational Dialogue

Permanent Link | Posted by The DC Center on March 3, 2012 11:02 PM


mobile.pngYou're invited to join us at the DC Center on Monday March 26th to learn more about the Mobile Homecoming Project, an exciting new initiative to promote intergenerational dialogue in our community. The event takes place from 5:30 to 7:00 PM at the DC Center for the LGBT Community, 1318 U Street NW.

Following the presentation, there will be an intergenerational mixer at MOVA from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM. MOVA is located at 2204 14th Street NW.

Mobile Homecoming is an innovative and loving response to a deep craving for intergenerational connection. A craving that lives in the hearts of queer black same gender loving elders and visionaries. A craving that has taken over the minds of two young queer black women. Julia Wallace of Queer Renaissance and Alexis Pauline Gumbs of BrokenBeautiful Press have decided to dedicate the next phase of their lives to collecting and amplifying the social organizing herstories of black women, trans men, and gender queer visionaries who have been refusing the limits of heteronormativity and opening the world up by being themselves in the second half of the 20th century.

Julia and Alexis have been traveling the country, gathering stories of queer black same gender loving elders, piecing together an intergenerational connection between us. There will be a mini-screening of their project followed by a discussion.

Come learn more about the Mobile Homecoming Project and how you can get involved.
