Chosen family kinship holds a place of reverence to two spirit and indigiqueer survival. This program interrogates the ways in which we as queer indigenous bodies carve out space for these human and non-human relationships as well as the impact they have on our ability to exist in a world that doesn’t always care for us. Join us for a mix of narrative and documentary film in partnership with the launch of Projections, the newest issue of the Together Apart zine.

Together Apart is a three-part collection of short zines pulling together voices from across Turtle Island and from the “Together Apart, Queer Indigeneities” symposium that took place over three days at the grunt gallery in the spring. Continuing the conversations from the symposium this second issue, Projections, focuses on imagining queer futures, how we reclaim archives and media, and how we bend and reshape the world to see ourselves in it.
