Hey folks. Kearny Street Workshop is putting on our annual runway fundraiser, Celebrate Your Body. It’s a body-positive fashion show, underground music showcase, and expo. It’s something I’m really excited to be a part of as is everything I do with this organization. For more information, please follow this link: http://bit.ly/cyb2015info
The event is hosted by poet/activist Sonya Renee of The Body is Not an Apology and features designs and styles by Halmoni Vintage, THÚY Custom Clothier, Patria Native Land, and Madeira. There will also be performances by Parae (post punk), Astralogik (electronic/soul), and The Rice Rockettes (Asian American drag troupe). DJ Baagi will be spinning hip hop and world beats.
You can get your tickets here: bit.ly/cyb2015. It’s happening Jan 31st at SOMArts in San Francisco. 934 Brannan St.
As part of Celebrate Your Body, Kearny Street Workshop will be acknowledging community honorees: Project Runway Season 13 finalist, Kini Zamora, and Lisa Lee and Lynn Chen of Thick Dumpling Skin.
I got the opportunity to be a panelist at this event, representing Kearny Street Workshop at the RESOURCES FOR WRITERS IN SAN FRANCISCO AND THE ROLE OF COMMUNITY panel. Here I am trying to look astute. Thanks to Poets and Writer’s magazine for inviting me to speak and I hope anyone who attended got something out of me being there.
