About this Event

The 2019 Melanin Pride Festival Art Exhibition is a space curated for LGBTQ+, non-binary people of color visual artists & activists to showcase, convene and connect with the community. The afternoon includes a short film screening, reception and discussion with emerging and established artists.

The MPF II Art Exhibition is proudly sponsored by Roxbury Innovation Center.

Featured Artists are:

Brandi "Noire" La Zard

Lilly Rose Valore

Payal Kumar

Stephanie Machore

Shorts:

My Grandson , Charlotte | Directed by Tyler Pierreson

A transgender teen and his immigrant granddad; a Sapeur from the Congo, bond over their shared understanding of the importance of identity and of always being true to one's self.

Same Same and Different | Directed by Seok Wun Au Yong

A docu-dramedy four-part short series of a young international film student from Thailand discovering her sexuality in a 21st century's U.S college setting.

In The Margins: Illuminating Islamic Queerness | Directed by Layla Abdul-Jabbar

In the Margins is an experimental animation which follows queer and transgender Muslims as they investigate the complex relationships between their gender and faith. This ongoing story of vulnerability, growth, and love creates a temporal quilt that illuminates those left in the margins with ornate detail.

Proceeds from the exhibition will benefit the artists and the Lesbians of Color Symposium Collective, Inc.

Melanin Pride Festival II is a renaissance in celebration and recognition of LGBTQ+, non-binary people of color in film and visual arts. The MPF features film screenings, an art exhibition, talks/panels dedicated to our experiences, creativity and narratives.

MPF's mission is to magnify the visibility of underrepresented and marginalized populations. Through partnerships and collaborations, we hope to create a network that will help expand the importance of creating and sustaining platforms for LGBTQ+ POC filmmakers and visual artists; and bridge the divide between our community and other groups.
