Divine Love Is Our Birthright*: a workshop in transfuturist prayer

*titled after art by Féi Hernandez and SA Smythe guided by Micah Rosegrant (they/them) How do we render space and beauty for ourselves out of the english language’s colonial landscape? How can prayer be a place to “shape God [and] shape change”? (adrienne maree brown with Octavia Butler). In this workshop, Micah will invite participants into their practice of trans affirmative spirituality, and then together everyone will explore poetry and spoken word as sites for imagining queer and trans futures. No experience required; all experience welcome. Come with a way to write (pen & paper, typing device, voice and recorder) and an openness to discovery. This event centers 2S&trans+ beings, while inviting and welcoming all. Closed captioning will be available. Please email bostonuq@gmail.com with any questions or concerns.
