Greensboro, North Carolina

We traveled into Greensboro, North Carolina, under the full moon on a warm Wednesday night.

In the mid-day, we were hosted by Guilford College’s Multicultural Education Department & the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Department for an intimate gathering at the Greenleaf Coffee  Co-op.  Thanks to the students, faculty and community members that joined us for the afternoon!

Thanks to John St. Louis for all your care and insight.

In the evening, we spoke at Elsewhere, a living museum set inside a former thrift store.

We were hosted by the Queer Explorer’s Club, a “civil service technical guild that explores the in-between spaces of gender and identity,” and by the Queer People of Color Collective, a group committed to intergenerational community building and promoting conversations across the intersections of race, ethnicity, class, sexual orientation and gender identity in the Triad Area.

Thank you to the volunteers from Greensboro Food Not Bombs for making yummy treats for the event and members from Cackalack Thunder, a local samba drum corps for wrapping the night up with beats in the streets.

Both groups planned to march in demonstration against the proposed reopening the controversial White Street Landfill.  Here’s a pic:
