In 2012 & 2013, this intergenerational series successfully showcased over 50+ QTPOC intergenerational artists and sold out The Mission Cultural Center to a crowd full of beautifully fierce jotatistas. This year in 2014, SQD launched it’s second annual paid 6 week creative writing workshop for youth in partnership with Youth Speaks led by Yosimar Reyes. All resources raised through this grassroots organized series go directly to paying artist stipends and developing independent arts education spaces for Queer/Questioning youth of color.
