Join the Queer Resource Center, Disability Resource Center, and Office of Global Diversity and Inclusion as we welcome Kay Ulanday Barrett to campus!

This performance harnesses political poetic storytelling with elements of spoken word and theatre. Informed by hip-hop and the jazz aesthetic, Kay Ulanday Barrett intimately strips down pretense, and engages love and an examination of the world. As a cultural worker, Kay aims to question notions of desirability, single-issue identity, ableism, and what exactly is mainstream normal. Themes explored during this performance keynote include intersecting identities in struggle with racism, misogyny, cissexism, migration, death/loss, queer love, migration, and disability.
