April 20 SF Public Library presents: A Free Queer/Trans People of Color Art Show

I just got a message from my friend Celeste Chan over at Queer Rebels telling me about this fantastic free QTPOC art show co-hosted by KB Boyce that’s happening in a less than a couple of weeks! In her own words:

We’d love to reach out to youth, elders, qtpoc, anyone who has been barred access to art due to $.” 

Thank you Celeste and the entire crew that’s putting this on! I’ll be in the Bay during that time and will be there and am looking forward to seeing lots of folks from the community and beyond :)

About Miyuki Baker

Miyuki is a resident of the place where circles overlap. As a queer, nomadic, multi-racial/lingual female mixed-media artist activist and healer, she uses common or discarded objects, personal anecdotes, public spaces and performance to make accessible art that brings non-mainstream identities and ideas into maximum visibility. After graduating from Swarthmore College in 2012, she traveled for 14 months as a Watson Fellow to fifteen countries documenting the intersections of art and activism in queer/trans communities in blog posts and self-published magazines while making performance art. The eight magazines Miyuki created on this trip (queerscribe.com) and their strong media following exemplify her illustration/graphic design, storytelling and people skills. Her work has been featured in several magazines such as Hyphen, Broken Pencil and Knik, blogs and radio shows, well-known for their interactive and eye-catching mixed media approach to activism that utilizes both online media and on-site performance and workshops. This fall she will begin the PhD program at UC Berkeley in Performance Studies. You can follow her travels at heymiyuki.wordpress.com and email her at heymiyuki@gmail.com
