Tongue to Tongue (T2T)

Provoking Critical Dialogues Among Queer Women of Color

September 7-9, 2007

Los Angeles, CA


Tongue to Tongue: Provoking Critical Dialogues Among Queer Women of Color is a community-organized three-day dialogue among self-identified queer women of color, including people with transgender, genderqueer and gender non-conforming experiences of womanhood which have traditionally been silenced in women-oriented spaces. T2T will feature workshops, lectures, visual art, film, and performances meant to facilitate real dialogue among participants. Tongue to Tongue believes that provoking honest and difficult dialogue is a critical first step toward building and strengthening community alliances across diverse communities and differences. The goal of this event is to envision concrete plans of action to collaboratively confront the injustices we face through proposals for continued organizing and solidarity building. This social change event aims to deepen analysis of-, broaden dialogue on-, and instigate response to critical issues created out of the intersecting sites of race, class, gender, sexuality, citizenship, and nationalism.

Self-identified queer women of color, transgender, genderqueer, and gender non-conforming people of color are invited to submit proposals for:

• Workshops, panel discussions, guest speakers and forums

• Art and photography exhibitions

• Independent films, music and performances by artists, filmmakers, bands, DJs, etc.

• As well as market-style arts, publications & crafts vendors

Following are possible topics/themes for consideration, but please do not feel limited:

• Gender ● Race ● Sexuality• Poverty/ Labor activism ● Nationality/Immigration ● Culture • Health ● Violence ● Rights (legal, civil, human, immigrant) • Family ● Community organizing ● Solidarity building

We welcome submissions from independent scholars, educators, artists, performers, musicians, academic community and community activists.

Please submit your Submissions Proposal form and any supporting materials to or postal mail to: T2T c/o VIVA/Tongues, 1125 N. McCadden Place,
