We are against hate which targets continually marginalized people, no matter if they are Asian, Asian-American, Pacific Islanders, Black, Indigenous, people of color, and LGBTQ+ identifying. We support movements for reform, protest, and equality. A collection of resources and organizations working toward these efforts, and those which offer support, can be found here.

We will continue to amplify marginalized voices, and welcome all, their ideas, their events, and their words. Our words here are not enough, but we wanted to say we support you and will continue to do so through our actions.

An additional list of support and relief funds can be found here.

Queer Writing w Wayne Gregory

October 24, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$210 – $237
Attic Institute, 4232 SE Hawthorne, Portland, OR 97215 + Google Map

How does being queer shape the stories we write and the way we write them? Does character, plot, or theme make a narrative queer or is it something in the way a queer writer sees the world that colors a narrative? This class will invite writers to explore and express their identity and how it informs what they write and the way they write it.  Whether you are writing fiction or non-fiction, or just writing for yourself this class will help you make connections between who you are becoming and what you are imagining through your writing. Writers with little or a lot of experience are welcome to this workshop-style class. Bring something you’re already working on or start from scratch, but either way our goal will be to have a completed piece at the end – it could be a paragraph, a multi-page piece, or something in-between. All genres are welcome. Supportive in-class critique and revision will be a strong part of the process. At the end of the class, you’ll have a better sense of who you are and why you are writing.
