Before the PULSE nightclub massacre in Orlando — the deadliest shooting and worst hate crime in U.S. history — LGBTQ people were already the most likely targets of hate crimes in America. Seattle is famous for our active LGBTQ community, but we are not exempt. In 2015, 72 hate crimes against LGBTQ people were reported to the Seattle PD — double from the previous year. Nationwide, bias-motivated killings of LGBTQ people are rising, with people of color massively overrepresented as victims. As trust in American authority and government wavers, we must ask ourselves: What can we do to combat violence and support justice from within? At this panel, listen to and engage with leaders in the LGBTQ community to discover ways that we can work to change the root causes of harm and oppression, and ultimately end anti-LGBTQ violence.

This panel is a pre-show talk before Donald Byrd’s world premiere of (Im)pulse, which highlights two works by two gay artists: David Wojnarowicz, a painter, photographer, writer, filmmaker, performance artist, and AIDS activist and playwright Brian Quirk. Utilizing the visceral protest-art performance style popular in the New York “downtown” art scene of the 90’, this two-part dance theater work is a hair-raising dramatic dance-theater work in response to the Orlando Pulse Nightclub tragedy and the ongoing aggression towards LBGTQ people.
