Eli Clare Performance: Gawking, Gaping, Staring

April 5, 2012 - 7:00 pm

Old Capitol - Senate Chambers

White, disabled, and genderqueer, Eli Clare happily lives in the Green Mountains of Vermont where he writes and proudly claims a penchant for rabble-rousing. He is a writer, speaker, activist, and educator who addresses the intersections of disability, gender and sexuality social justice in his work. This event is FREE, OPEN to the public, and will be ASL interpreted.
Disabled people, trans people, fat people, and people of color all know what it's like to be stared at. Through words and images, Eli explores the internal experiences of living in marked bodies and the external meanings of oppression and bodily difference.

7:00-8:30pm with a reception following speaking engagement from 8:30-10pm at WRAC (130 N. Madison St across from IMU).

All are welcome!
