logoHorizons’ Q Series are free public events featuring leaders of the LGBTQ movement in dialogue about our movement, our culture, and what it means to be LGBTQ. The Q Series offers excellent opportunities to learn about the work being done by Horizons’ grantee partners and to meet and connect with others.

These popular programs include high-level, strategic discussions about movement strategy, emerging issues affecting the LGBTQ community, how to give more effectively and strategically, and feature outstanding professionals and community leaders.

Q Series 2018
Queer Art: Our Stories of Resistance and Healing
Queer Art has always told a deep narrative of our LGBTQ community. Throughout modern history it has told intricate tales of our struggles, our resistance, and our healing. Today, queer art and artists play a prominent role in our larger culture but in the process, has it lost its identity? At our free Q Series event, our distinguished panelists will be discussing how queer art fuels the resistance and whether, by taking up space in nontraditional areas, it still yields the same effects that it has in the past?

Participants include: Ed Decker, Artistic Director, New Conservatory Theatre Center; India Davis, Artistic Director of Topsy Turvy Queer Circus; Ani Rivera, Executive Director, Galeria de la Raza; Shawna Virago, Artistic Director, Transgender Film Festival
