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 :)
