– Synopsis –
2-Spirit is an umbrella term for Indigenous peoples that identify with the LGBTQ+ community. Although it is a contemporary term created in the 90’s, it acknowledges that diverse sexualities and gender roles exist within our Indigenous traditions in North America. We envision that this event will highlight Indigiqueer culture from across Turtle Island and abroad, and that it will celebrate 2-Spirit artists in a variety of practices, such as drag, dance, vogue, music, spoken word, and performance art.
• $20 advance tickets / $25 at the door
*Includes admission to both the Music Showcase & 2-Spirit Ball
• 2-Spirit Ball will be live-streamed on the Asinabka Festival Website
