Fall 2021 Bizarre Program
This collaborative program between Toronto Kiki Ballroom Alliance, Kimora Amour a.k.a Juju Monroe and FreedomSchool was an opportunity for children 6-12 to learn about the ballroom category: “BIZARRE”. Children learned about ballroom arts as a form of Black, LGBTQ resistance. They also learned to embrace being “weird” as a form of revolutionary, self-love.
Each year November 20 marks Transgender Day of Remembrance which acknowledges ongoing murder and violence towards transgender people around the world. In 2021, for Trans Day of Remembrance we chose to celebrate our Black trans and non-binary children and youth by “giving them their flowers while they are here” [Cecilia Gentili]. This event was marked by a dinner, community-based spa and literal flowers for our little ones.
