Heels On Wheels

Heels on Wheels hosts an evening of performances and conversation celebrating the passion and resilience of queer femme artist-organizers. How do these powerhouses balance their own artistic careers, while producing events that shine the spotlight on the incredible talents of their community members? Join us for an evening of work by Shannon Matesky (Queer Abstract), Shomi Noise (Riot Chica), and the co-creators of Heels on Wheels, Heather María Ács and Damien Luxe. Performances range from theatre, music, spoken word, and drag to literary arts, film, and multimedia. Panelists will share work that speaks from a variety of intersectional identities, including poc, mixed race, immigrant, sex workers, poor, and working-class. Performances will be followed by a panel on art making and arts organizing. RSVP here.

* Admittance is still first come, first serve (whether you have RSVP'ed or not).
* The Stoop has a limited capacity and seating is NOT guaranteed.
