This workshop dares us to understand and adore our whole selves. Being Disabled, Sick, Chronically Ill, Deaf,
and/or being Brilliant/Crazy are often understood as flaws. Participants will discuss avenues of critical
intersections as brown, poor, trans, immigrant, disabled, other. Everyone is encouraged to participate, but priority
will be offered to those who live with SDQ (Sick & Disabled Queer/Transgender Indigenous or People of Color)
experiences. Participants are asked to please bring their journals and/or writing materials.

Chicano funk with the body-moving and illuminating vibes of afrobeat. Los Macuanos' productions echo the hedonism of Tijuana's lost rave scene, with
