****Important Note to the Lovely Folks on Will Call****

If you have already purchased your tickets online through the Brown Paper Tickets website, please plan to arrive by 5:45pm next Sunday, June 9th! Doors open promptly at 6pm & because this event is going to sell out, we WILL have to sell unclaimed tickets. For that reason, *please* plan to arrive by 5:45pm so we can welcome you & get you seated without issue. Thank you for the ongoing support & you are always welcome to email if you have any specific questions or concerns around ticketing. Thank you!

In 2012, this intergenerational series ran for the first time and successfully sold out The Mission Cultural Center to a crowd full of beautifully fierce jotatistas. Last year, SQD also launched a paid 8 week creative writing workshop for youth led by Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha, published an anthology, and showcased a total of 22 local artists of color. All resources raised through this grassroots organized series go directly to paying artist stipends and developing independent arts education spaces for Queer/Questioning youth of color.

Please check out our 2012 anthology here!
