The Mission of Queering the Box is to shine a light on our intersecting identities and acknowledge that in their complexities there is strength and creativity.
Checking a box is often limiting as it can force us to choose definitive qualities about ourselves when really our identities are infinite and ever evolving.
Our objective is to highlight the intersection of queerness and other oppressed identities and to center the voices and experiences of marginalized folks within the LGBTQ community. We have now chosen what we will feature and will actually be showing the same pieces in several locations.
Queering the Box will shine a light on our intersecting identities and acknowledge that in their complexities there is strength and creativity. We are excited to center the voices and experiences of marginalized folks within the LGBTQ community by highlighting the intersection of queerness and other oppressed identities. At the conclusion, representatives of the film along with a member of the Hudson Valley community will take stage to answer questions from the viewers.
In Our Own Word: On Being Trans at Smith
“In Our Own Words” asks– how do these trans students fit into Smith’s vision of “women for the world”? How are trans students supported or unsupported by the administration and their fellow students? This film explores erasure, hyper visibility, transphobia, views about trans students within all levels of the institution, and the ongoing debate of who does and does not “belong” at Smith.
So often the B&T get left out of the LGBT discussion. Among our own queer community, as well as from our heterosexual allies, we sometimes face bi & transphobia; erroneous stereotyping; and plain old lack of awareness. By being open and accepting, we can strengthen our LGBT community and world at large.
