Please join us this Sunday from 3:00 to 5:00 for Giving Life - LGBTQ & Black Excellence. See below for more details about the event.
I’m writing to let you know we are so excited to be welcoming our friends from The Tenth Zine (“Black, Gay and Unbothered”) to present this Sunday at 3 pm at Giving Life - LGBTQ & Black Excellence at the Center. Taking its name from a W.E.B DuBois essay titled “The Talented Tenth,” The Tenth is a biannual publication that champions black LGTBQ voices via photographic essays, in-depth interviews, prose, and events. Since the magazine’s first edition was released in 2015, it has received widespread acclaim for its presentation of counternarratives of black gay and bisexual lives, and for its ability to push boundaries and offer stunning visual imagery of and by black LGBTQ artists.
Khary Septh, the Editor in Chief, will be joined by two of the magazine’s creative directors to speak about the intricacies of the black gay experience and creative responses in the face of complex challenges—from digital engagement to classism—and examples of modern day trailblazers of Black Queer cultural resistance.
We hope to see you there!
