Mother Earth is Burning- A Climate Justice Kiki Ball
February 10 @ 7:00 pm - February 11 @ 12:00 am
In partnership with the Soleil Felicity, Dash Felicity, Grounded Voces, and the Civic Center Conservancy, Ecoinclusive is please to invite you to the first annual Mother Earth is Burning Kiki Ball. This event brings together Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), LGBTQ+, and climate action communities with the aim of spreading knowledge and information about the climate crisis, its disproportionate effect on those who are marginalized, and what impacted communities are doing to combat environmental injustice. The climate movement can only thrive when the power of BIPOC and LGBTQ+ communities is elevated. Join us in creating a space of love, celebration, and empowerment while learning about how the climate crisis affects your community and how you can actively contribute to the movement.
The Ballroom scene, originating in New York City in the early 1980s, owes much of its inception and early development to the Black and Latinx LGBTQ+ communities. This cultural movement was a direct response to the systemic inequalities, discrimination, and the lack of safe spaces these communities faced. Ballroom provided a platform for self-expression, fierce competition, and artistry, often born out of necessity. Today, this scene has expanded into a global phenomenon, representing a unique fusion of dance, fashion, and performance that celebrates Black LGBTQ+ culture, resilience, and creativity. We pay homage to this rich history, emphasizing the Black and Latinx LGBTQ+ leaders whose contributions laid the foundation for this dynamic subculture.
