#we music

a talk and performance series of queer perspectives

Please join us for the seventh installment of #we, a talk and performance series of queer perspectives hosted by Richard Loranger. Each event features two writers, musicians, or performers from various segments of the queer spectrum, who each give a talk on their perspective on or experience of queerness, along with a reading or performance of their creative work.

Sydney Chen

For our seventh event, Chinese-American vocalist, musician, and composer Sidney Chen will speak on expressing gayness in two cultures and languages in his talk “Mother Tongues: Reclaiming a Discarded Self”, and perform vocally as well as play us a few of his handmade music box pieces; and non-binary singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Rybree Tree will give a talk titled “In Between: Visions from the Outskirts & People People” and regale us with their amazing and joyous voice and music.

Rybree Tree

We try to start promptly at 7 pm. Q&A and chat time will follow.

Absolutely all are welcome to this sharing of perspectives. The venue is wheelchair accessible, and ASL translation for the deaf is available on request, with a two-week notice preferred.
