Candlelight Vigil with Keynote by Amir Rabiyah
November 20, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Candles will be provided and we will read off the names and bios of Trans folks we have lost to violence in the United States over the last year. Note that this list cannot be comprehensive because of transphobic laws and cultural norms that allow others to control how someone’s death is reported.
Amir Rabiyah is a Trans and Two-Spirit disabled Queer Femme poet and writing coach. They were born in London, England to a mixed Cherokee and White mother and a Lebanese and Syrian father. Their work explores living life on the margins and at the intersections of multiple identities. Amir writes about living with chronic pain and illness, war, trauma, spirituality, healing, redemption – and speaks on silenced places.
