The eMErge Sessions: Digital Narratives of Transition

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In a world where femmes are often in danger, we continue to thrive and survive, using social media as a tool of resistance. In this session, we will explore how social media enables femmes to exist and challenge the binary through the marriage of poetry, music and movement. We will draw connections with the past and present and show how femme identity is tantamount to creation and expression. Participants will walk away with an expanded understanding about the need of femme-centered movements and how they benefit all.
