Gaysian BBQ Luau ~Hawaiian themed~ RSVP Please!
What: A Festive, Laid-back, Friendly BBQ for ALL Gaysians and for ALL their Friends.
WHY: Too often people in marginalized communities - LGBT, People of Color, Immigrants, Working-Class and Poor -are taught to hate each other. If it was not already difficult dealing with the racism, sexism, poverty, and violence entrenced in our communities, LGBT People of Color and Immigrants face oppression in multiple ways. We are taught to compete instead of to share, hate instead of to love, and take instead of to give. And we are told by this society that the only place LGBT People of Color can chill is in the clubs, at nights, often under the influence. This BBQ will be a space to chill, show love, eat great food, be with friends, meet new friends, and enjoy everyone's company.
WHO: Friends and Allies of the Providence Youth-Student Movement (PrYSM). "Our purpose is to empower Southeast Asian youth to become powerful activists, critical thinkers, and leaders; to make connections between different struggles and communities; to build and organize a multi-racial movement for social justice, change, and love."
