The Hampshire College Performing Identity Series continues with:

Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha
Love Cake: A Spoken Word Poetry Performance

Monday October 24th 7:00pm
Main Lecture Hall, Hampshire College

In Love Cake, Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha explores how queer people of
colour resist and transform violence through love and desire. Refusing to forget the traumas of post 9/11 Islamophobia, and Sri Lanka’s civil war, Love Cake documents the persistence of survival and beauty—especially the dangerous beauty found in queer people of colour’s lives. Piepzna-Samarasinha maps the complicated, luscious joy of reclaiming the body and sexuality after abuse, examines a family history of violence with compassion and celebrates the beautiful resistance of queer of color love and home making.

Food For Thought Books, Amherst, MA

Come celebrate the release of the newest Original Plumbing issue: Family Matters, #8!!! Join Amos Mac & Rocco Kayiatos, co-editors of OP and all your loved ones at Food For Thought Books.

OP says: “Before the first issue of Original Plumbing even came out, a young single father contacted me asking me when we would make an issue celebrating and discussing trans families. It took a moment to work out all the details, but here we are, officially two years into creating OP, finally presenting to you: OP #8 “ FAMILY MATTERS.”
