FUTURES Cypher: Pride 2050
“We should indeed keep calm in the face of difference, and live our lives in a state of inclusion and wonder at the diversity of humanity.”—George Takei
What will the future of PRIDE look like in the year 2050? As a society, we’re constantly evolving and still striving for equal rights for everyone, and the conversation will continue to push us forward. How can we keep the momentum to build inclusive living environments and keep working towards a more collaborative and equal world? In honor of PRIDE month, join Sasha Velour for AIB’s Futures Cypher: PRIDE 2050, an interactive discussion and performance art exchange challenging big thinkers and creatives in the LGBTQ+ community to collaboratively reimagine shared futures.
Queer identifying scientists, entertainers, scholars, and other innovative minds will be prompted to share perspectives about their ideal futures. In response, performing artists will interpret the presented ideas through a variety of creative mediums including live painting, freestyle poetry, vocal performance or playback theatre. Make sure you stay for a pride celebration to kick off DC’s Capital City Pride.
