Imagine How Free We Can Get: Walking Tour Qcc2Admin 2017-11-10T20:19:39+00:00
|The Mission has been a hotspot of queer community, culture and resistance for over 40 years. Come find out more about this incredibly rich queer radical history on this radical queer/trans walking/biking tour! Traveling from Gloria Anzaldua’s house to the old Luna Sea, from 1980s Latina queer bars to the Catacombs, this tour will take you through queer time and space, remembering legacies of struggle, joy and art. We’ll refuse to forget the queer elders who brought us here, and recognize the queers hanging out through many waves of gentrification and repression. Along the way, we’ll witness street postering installations and stencils by Lex NonScripta and other Mission artists. Free homemade popsicles! Panel and reception to follow at Modern Times Bookstore.

Having been an active participant, consumer, and creator of self-published media, zines, and projects since the mid-90s, Lex has a vested interest in creating an accessible forum for artists, writers, and the community to interact and refuses to believe that the printed word is a thing of the past. In addition to exhibiting art whenever possible, Lex has curated a number of showcases for artists and musicians, worked extensively with community-run non-profit arts organizations, and maintains an active commitment to political organizing in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. Lex holds a BFA in Illustration and Design from Columbia College Chicago, works as a freelance artist, and lives amongst an amazing and inspiring community of people in San Francisco.
