During this month’s WYD?, we are looking back to move forward.
What lessons can we learn from our past so that we don't cause the same harm, same mistakes in the future? How do we heal past and present trauma in our Queer and Trans communities? We dream of a world where our Queer and Trans siblings feel safe and are empowered to live in their truth as they transcend heteronormative boundaries. Art and Healing happen through connection with others in spaces of relaxation, rest, play, and pleasure. Rooted in our collective healing, we welcome each guest as we would our dearest friends to think through the most challenging issues of our time and imagine better ways to move forward together.
WYD? Is our monthly gathering to more deeply explore what our values mean to us and to learn from our community members with similar values and practices.
This year, we are curating our monthly WYD? Installments as a space to learn from our community and local context as we dive deeper into our values. We are inviting our friends and organizations whose work we admire, to share their current research, work, or projects related to our monthly themes.
