WRRQ is a multi-racial, intergenerational, cross-class, all-gender collective of artists and activists that have been collaborating since 2013, though some relationships date much farther back. An intersectional mix of queer and transgender sex workers, formerly homeless, people with disabilities, HIV+, indigenous, immigrants, first gen, survivors and accomplices, WRRQ makes art and food for visual resistance and community healing.
MIX NYC Queer Experimental Film Festival is an annually occurring underground gem of NYC queer counter-culture that brings together a large and diverse community of queer people with a rich history of art and activism in celebration of film and video as mediums for queer art, craft, and self-expression, with a reputation for one-of-a-kind transformative visual and social experiences.
