Transcript of Living Feminisms

In this program Les Blues examines the conflict of blackness, religion, gender, and sexuality. Confronting religious upbringings, we look at what it's like to come to terms with own ones sexuality and gender. We will also explore the possibilities of maintaining your religious/spiritual connection without compromising, breaking free from the binary sexual and gender codes of conformity. Les Blues is Le-roi Newbold, Dainty Smith, Leelee Davis, Kim Katrin Crosby and Kalmplex
For this new edition of the show, the group has revamped and invited guest artists to join in. Come see us as we give our take, on Madonna's 30 year's of cultural appropriation. Evoking ideas through entertaining, beautiful multimedia performances, expect spectacular music, theater, videos, art and choreography from the troupe.

"I have a few questions.
Where will this information be housed and how will it be made accessible to communities that are its focus? Too often I think research projects are done about our communities harvesting incredible knowledge and wisdom and community members broadly do not have access to the information and continue to lack the autonomy and support to make decisions about the content and/or recommendations?

Does this study take into account the way other communities (i.e. through processes of gentrification) over exploit 'at-risk' communities? The term developing or underdeveloped when it refers to countries obscures the fact that these countries are in fact over exploited by the global north for labour, resources and as sites of waste. The use of this language for me suggests that there isn't an awareness of the intentional ways that the underdevelopment is intentional.

The development of joint policies and action plans also means holding governments responsible for the ways in which they contribute to the pathology of sickness within urban communities as well the ways that health institutions in this city are homophobic, transphobic, racist and sexist. What are the levels of commitment from the various partners to engage in institutional transformation to make our communities safer? Part of the ways that privilege plays out is the the ones in positions of authority are often exempt from perpetuating social inequity - this looks like pathologizing our communities as 'at-risk' as opposed to examining the systems that not only create it, but function based upon it.

I am looking forward to your detailed responses to these questions."
