ROOTS: a Dance for LGBT Human Rights in Africa at All Asia (Sat June 12th)

Posted By QWOC+ Boston on May 3rd, 2010

DID YOU KNOW?

In Africa, DANCE is an expression of PRIDE.

In Africa, DANCE invigorates and sustains the SPIRIT and LIVELIHOOD of many cultures.

In Africa, DANCE unites people in SOLIDARITY and summons forth RESISTANCE.

In Africa, DANCE is used as a CALL TO BRETHREN, neighboring villages, ALLIES, spirits who have passed, ancestors, and gods…

In Africa, DANCE EMPOWERS and UNITES ENTIRE COMMUNITIES in times of celebration…

… and of need.

THIS PRIDE SEASON, you are invited to:

ROOTS: A PRIDE EVENT **WITH AN INTERNATIONAL TWIST**

DANCE. LIVE. FREE. IN SOLIDARITY with the AFRICAN LGBT HUMAN RIGHTS MOVEMENT.

**A portion of the proceeds from this all-evening musical performance and dance celebration will be donated to the “International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission” — an organization dedicated to human rights advocacy on behalf of people who experience discrimination or abuse on the basis of their actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.**

PRIDE IS A PRIVILEGE. Let’s Use Ours to Support Global Equality.
