Black Gay Letters and Arts Movement Celebration of Word and Performances
Friday-Saturday, June 20th - 21st 8:00pm
The SF LGBT Community Center/Ceremonial Room

Join curators and co-founders Marvin K. White and Cedric Brown for the 3rd Annual B/GLAM Arts Festival. Telling both forgotten and new stories of Black Gay Men, this two-day celebration of word and performance features some of the most dynamic working artists in the Bay Area. As always, B/GLAM broadens the brush stroke, sings the new song, and dances the familiar and the new dance, all at the intersections of blackness, affection, family, community and love.
