SALON 01: DESIRABILITY POLITICS
+ How is being desirable a political, social, economic power?
+ What are the social / economic / political implications of being “undesirable” — of being poor, queer, BlPOC*, undocumented, disabled, fat, and/or ugly? (*w emphasis on the function of anti-Blackness)
+ Can our own desires be decolonized?
AMANDA-FAYE JIMENEZ is a writer/performer & Blaxican queer fat femme dyke.
+ Rejects the idea that beauty has inherent value by claiming ugly as a resistive aesthetic.
+ Come for the misandry, stay for the misandry: @failureprincess
PROVVIDENZA CATALANO is an actor, writer, organizer, photographer, fattie & genderful queer.
+ Unapologetically pro fat & post binary.
+ Proof that they’re 100% that bonch: @provvidenzac
MANDY HARRIS WILLIAMS is a conceptual artist & Black Identity Extremist.
+ #brownupyourfeed implores viewers to unfollow whiteness.
+ Follow her political vanity project: @idealblackfemale
