“Illusion/Family Tree: The Magic of Queervallis Drag” – Mirza Leads Gallery Talk

Dharma Mirza is no stranger to adversity. As someone who has a background of trauma, transphobia, sexual violence, and sadly, much more, she has become an forceful activist and advocate for members of the LGBTQIA2S+ community today. 

Founding the Haus of Dharma, she has found different forms of art to be a perfect platform for such activism. From drag shows to exhibits, Mirza has created a community safe for her and other performers to address social issues with a political edge.

On Friday, April 14, in the South Santiam Hall Gallery, Mirza will discuss her process as curator in creating “Illusion / Family Tree: The Magic of Queervallis Drag” from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Many of the featured artists whose work is on display will also be in attendance to discuss their work. Snacks and drinks will be provided. 

For questions, email Anne Magratten at magrata@linnbenton.edu.
