Yaaas Queen! It's Purim and The CJM has a spiel you don't want to miss. Join San Francisco's favorite queens LOL McFiercen, Miss Shugana, Black Benatar, along with Queen Esther and the original He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named for a rollicking Purim drag cabaret. You too can be a queen when you create your own DIY beard-crown at the craft table, and explore gender expression in contemporary art on view in "Show Me as I Want to Be Seen." Tonight's free events are presented in partnership with Culture for Community.
Culture for Community is a unique group of Yerba Buena district institutions who have joined together to open their doors for free on March 21 and September 19, 2019, and to feature programs focused on an issue of special importance to the Bay Area community.
Following a series of cultural shifts driven by and impacting womxn, including the Women's Wave of elected representatives in Washington D.C., the #MeToo movement, and threats to transgender rights, Culture for Community's inaugural free day focuses on Culture for Womxn. All are invited to participate in a full day of special events, activities, and museum and gallery hopping in the Yerba Buena Neighborhood.
