Fierce drag queens dance off the Google buses of San Francisco. Black and Asian communities join forces in the struggle for racial justice, instigated by the LA Riots, Rodney King’s beating, and Tian Sheng Yu’s death in Oakland. A Two-spirit artist journeys in gender to find home within the self. Black Lives Matter, stretching now and into infinity with Afrofuturism. Home is displacement, a transtastic Hà Nội music video/ visual poem on the 40th anniversary of the Việt Nam War. For a Chican@ transgender teen in LA, what is home but a haunting? In Vietnamese, the word “nước” means water, country, nation, and homeland. To ask “nước nào?” is to ask, “Where is your country? Where is your home?”
Mission of Queer Rebels: Founded in late 2008 by artists KB Boyce and Celeste Chan, Queer Rebels showcases queer/trans artists of color, connects generations, and honors our histories with art for the future.
