As part of Queer California: Untold Stories, join us for an afternoon of song, dance, poetry, and live performances with members from the Bay Area American Indian Two-Spirit (BAAITS), a community-based organization committed to activism and service for the Two-Spirit and ally communities of the Bay Area. Celebrate and learn more about BAAITS' 20-year commitment to spiritual, cultural, and artistic expression in native and non-native communities.
Two-spirit is a modern, pan-Indian, umbrella term used by some Indigenous North Americans to describe certain people in their communities who fulfill a traditional third-gender (or other gender-variant) ceremonial role in their cultures; a Native American term for people with both feminine and masculine energies. Two-spirits may (or may not) also identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer.
BAAITS member collaborators: Roger Kuhn, Amelia Vigil, and Ruth Villasenor
