Trans Day of Visibility Keynote featuring Kay Ulanday Barrett

MORE THAN ORGANS: Beyond Resilience, A Performance Keynote

This performance harnesses political poetic storytelling with elements of spoken word and theatre. Informed by hip-hop and the jazz aesthetic, Kay intimately strips down pretense, and engages love and an examination of the world. Kay aims to question notions of desirability, single-issue identity, ableism, and what exactly is mainstream normal. Themes explored during this performance keynote include intersecting identities in struggle with racism, misogyny, cissexism, migration, death/loss, disability, and of course, queer love. How do competition and respectability politics impose oppression and instead, how do we uplift our whole lives to joy beyond resilience? How do we embrace a politic that doesn’t isolate or accommodate, but engages everyday movements to show up for those who are affected? This keynote will relay tangible perspectives on ableism as it relates to other isms on a nationwide level from K’s perspectives in Disability Justice organizing to facilitations and campus performances offered to over 50+ campuses nationwide.

Trans Day of Visibility Workshop featuring Kay Ulanday Barrett

Liberation Shows Up!

This performance dares us to understand and adore our whole selves. Being Disabled, Sick, Chronically Ill, Deaf, and/or being Brilliant/Crazy are often understood as flawed. Also, as Transgender & Queer People of Color you can be impacted by displacement and migration. Ultimately, we survive in struggles that are alienated and dehumanized. Our contributions deserve visibility. The truth is, we face all struggles simultaneously! Paying homage to audre lorde: “I do not believe in single-issue politics, because we do not live single-issue lives,” avenues of critical intersections as brown, poor, trans, im/migrant, Disabled, and “other” are explored. How do competition and respectability politics impose oppression in our actions, our lives? How do we embrace a politic that doesn’t isolate or accommodate, but engages everyday movements to show up for those who are affected & not talked about? How can we come to a place of honoring ourselves fully? You are invited to embrace a sexy, complicated, sacred, powerful, and amazing lineage. To Sick & Disabled Queer/Transgender Indigenous or People of Color (SDQTIPOC) daily survival!
