Author + Talk: Butch Queens Up in Pumps with Marlon Bailey

February 15 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

| Free

Join us for a presentation and discussion with Marlon M. Bailey, Associate Professor of Women and Gender Studies at Arizona State University’s School of Social Transformation.

About Marlon’s book Butch Queens Up in Pumps:

“Butch Queens Up in Pumps examines Ballroom culture, in which inner-city LGBT individuals dress, dance, and vogue to compete for prizes and trophies. Participants are affiliated with a house, an alternative family structure typically named after haute couture designers and providing support to this diverse community. Marlon M. Bailey’s rich first-person performance ethnography of the Ballroom scene in Detroit examines Ballroom as a queer cultural formation that upsets dominant notions of gender, sexuality, kinship, and community.”

5:30 – 6:30 p.m. – Small group discussion (limited to 12 RSVPs)

6:45 – 8:30 p.m. – Talk and Q&A
