In the lounge For the Living Benefit shows for F2L!
About This Show
“Gender self-determination is queer liberation is prison abolition.” ~Critical Resistance
“Fight like hell for the living.” ~Sylvia Rivera
The United States incarcerates more of its population than any other country on earth—this cycle of incarceration specifically affects Black people, Indigenous people, and communities of color. Within those communities we see disproportionate rates of incarceration for LGBTQGNCTSI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, gender non-conforming, two-spirit, intersex) people, people living with HIV/AIDS, and people with disabilities.
Over two nights at Dixon Place, artists building for abolition and gender self-determination come together to raise funds for F2L and fight For the Living!
about the artists
F2L works to support queer and trans people of color in New York State whose lives are impacted by the prison-industrial complex. F2L is a volunteer-run project primarily made up of queer and trans people of color in NYC that provides jail, court, media and housing aid to individuals targeted by the prison system, as well as to the communities who are supporting their cases. F2L’s goal is to directly support impacted individuals while envisioning an end to police and prison violence through fundraising, advocacy and organizing.
