The Qosmos Projects is a spirited, rigorous public performance practice exploring the ever-expanding field of queer and gendered bodies, theory, and culture. Qosmos shows + texts + workshops map and uplift how trans liberation and nonnormative gender cultures are pushing the borders of human thought and existence. A core tenet of the projects is an intervention into drag – unearthing concepts of post-drag as a channel for conjuring collective visions and representations in the qosmic realms beyond the binary.
Launched in 2019 in Los Angeles, the Qosmos Projects is an umbrella for multi-generational writing, critical thought, performances, and LGBTQIA youth programming and mentorship.
Youth Art Lab
A truth-telling, heart-mending, art-making hub for LGBTQIA youth! Qumanity is a brave space and creative laboratory to explore your voice, stories, identities, community connections, and inner "qumanity." Through playful, interactive workshops we focus on zine making, storytelling, performance, and community-building to create survival strategies and tools for joy and freedom. Programming includes a roundup of guest artists as well as resource-sharing and advocacy support for youth and their families.
Qumanity has been offered as a summer camp, an online workshop series for LAUSD, and as an interactive workshop space at youth festivals.
