QUEER UP THE CLOTHESLINE



EVENT DATE
Sunday, October 29, 2017
5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

LOCATION
Center on Halsted


DESCRIPTION

An evening of storytelling, reclaiming painful events surrounding domestic violence, and inspiring others in their survival.

Featuring: Queen Lily Be: “Mother, storyteller, and badass. Mujer, hecha y derecha.”

The Clothesline Project is a national Domestic Violence event where survivors write messages on shirts and put on a clothesline for others to see. 

 For survivors who have been affected by violence, it is a means of expressing their emotions by decorating a t-shirt. After the shirts have been decorated, they are hung on a clothesline display. The intention of the display is to honor survivors and act as a memorial for victims. It is also intended to aid in the healing process for those who were directly affected and those who have lost someone special to violence. Lastly, the clothesline display is to educate society and promote awareness, as well as to document violent crimes against survivors.
