Jayasri Majumdar Hart's ROOTS IN THE SAND is a multi-generational portrait of pioneering Punjabi-Mexican families who settled, a century ago, in Southern California's Imperial Valley.

Ignite the Erotic: Mapping Queer Womyn of Color Counter-Narrativesbreesip 

Wednesday | April 27 | 5-7pm
Cross-Cultural Center Art Gallery

Ignite your erotic desires and join us for an evening of art, poetry, spoken word, and dialogue mapping the counter-narratives of queer womyn of color. Audre Lorde states that the erotic is a measure between our sense of self and the chaos of our strongest feelings. This night will shed light to the diverse voices of queer womyn of color by allowing them to share their untold stories through various forms of art and performance. Food and refreshments will be provided. Everyone is welcome! For more information contact Bree at bmmarque@ucsd.edu. 


Transgender Film Fest tgfilmfest

Tuesday | April 19 | 6-8pm

These genre-blurring short films weave elements of documentary and narrative film to entertain and enlighten with sweet, seductive, and subversive visions from the queerest part of the LGBT spectrum. The screening includes works by established and emerging filmmakers including Iris prizewinner Lee Mi-Rang's The Bath, and Transproofed by Andrea James and Calpernia Addams, the real-life subject of the Emmy-winning Soldiers Girl. Zsa-Zsa Gershick's Door Prize won for Best Short at the 2010 Kansas City Gay and Lesbian Film Festival while award-winning Queerer Than Thou has screened at over 50 LGBT film festivals on four continents. These films will make your heart twinge, melt, race, and pound. Enjoy the ride!

This event is co-hosted by the Campus Community Centers and the Asian Pacific Islander Student Alliance.

Our Beautiful Bodies  

Wednesday | April 20 | 5-7pm  

LGBT Resource Center

Have you ever felt like your body wasn't good enough? It's not true! Our bodies are beautiful, no matter how they look! Come to this program to reclaim your beauty and find out the ways in which harmful conceptions of the perfect body have been created and perpetuated. We will look at the play between politics and capital investment that is directed towards the queer community, and reflect on how that affects us as people with many intersecting identities. In doing so we will expose the fundamental fallacies that the images create about the human body, how they invalidate people of color, and overall cause us a lot of unnecessary heartbreak! Video clips will be shown and together we will create a collage showcasing what we think about the perfect body! Questions? Contact cklemmer@ucsd.edu
