Featuring Lexi Adsit – Other Artists To Be Announced Soon!

AUGUST 23 | 7-9 pm, Doors at 6
Artists Repertory Theater
Tickets $15 – 35 (pay what you can)

Basic Rights Oregon and our friends at the Artists Repertory Theater invite you to Front and Center, a performance benefit featuring queer and trans artists of color! The evening’s performances will run the gamut of performance art, spoken word, singing, and dancing. All proceeds from the evening will go to fund the racial justice and transgender justice programs at Basic Rights Oregon.

This year our headliner will be Lexi Adsit – a fierce, fat, and femme translatina writer, storyteller, and stand-up comedian best known for her sassy, incisive feminist comedy style rooted in themes that advance social justice. She is the co-leader of the Oakland-based Peacock Rebellion, an art group centered around trans women and femmes of color. In addition to her performances, her writing has appeared in numerous publications and anthologies. We can’t wait to see what she has in store for us!

No one will be turned away from the event due to an inability to pay. If you can’t afford a ticket at one of our sliding-scale tiers, please email araguaney@basicrights.org. 

This event is ADA accessible and ASL interpreted.
