The event creator says
Join Tashi Ko (Miko Kuro's Midnight Tea), Anastacia Renee Tolbert, and Evan J. Peterson for a ritual to decolonize yourself through art and poetry. Cost: Free.

We will write our Red Lineages--poetic geneaologies of families both genetic and chosen--inspired by our own lives as well as the art of Kehinde Wiley, now on exhibit at the Seattle Art Museum. This time, we seek also to expand the Red Lineage project by queering the definition of family to include drag families, Houses, kink/poly families, etc., inspired by Kehinde Wiley's subjects.

Co-sponsored by Hugo House.

The Red Lineage is an ongoing artistic ritual, creating a single poem from the words and heritage of hundreds of participants.

Example:
My name is Vulnerable Red.
My mother's name is Staunch Red.
My father's name is Red-Eye Red.
I come from a people known for flagrance & survival.
Remember me.

My drag name is I Goddam Dare You Red.
My drag mother's name is I Am Not Your Thing Red.
My daddy's name is Stroke The Fur Red.
I come from a people known for manifesting the right tool at the right time and living to walk another runway.
Remember me.
