Time is not linear. Gender is not static. Join poets, sisters, and co-conspirators Justice Ameer and Chrysanthemum for a performance that explores how transfeminine livelihood is refracted through the ages, bending queer histories while bringing us closer together in kinship. At Archives, Apocalypses & Trans Futures, we’ll commune in celebration and mourning of our presents, our pasts, and our prophecies.
