PORTRAITS OF PRIDE
AUGUST 8 FROM 7 TO 9 PM
A collaboration between #BBATX, Unbounded Agency and Space 24 Twenty, Portraits of Pride is an open happy hour on August 8 meant to capture visual expressions and celebrate queer history.
The event will honor activist Marsha P. Johnson, a trailblazing queer trans woman of color who set into motion the gay liberation movement and also affected a generation of social change. Captured via Fujifilm Instax, portraits will be taken behind the scenes that provoke commentary around the politics of queerness. Developing photos will be hung on clothespins to create a collective piece meant to signify solidarity with and visibility for our LGBTQ community. Mosaico Experiencia will spin from 7 to 9 PM, too.
The event is free for anyone to attend, and we will be providing light, complimentary cocktails by Tito's Handmade Vodka and Richard's Rainwater. 🌈
