Disability Liberated was curated for Disability Incarcerated, an event hosted at UC Berkeley*, bringing together scholars, students, activists, and community members to map the intersections of policing, imprisonment, and the disabled body. This event seeks to step into the conspicuous void within critiques of the “prison industrial complex” – namely the absence of discussion of disability oppression, despite the disproportionate representation of people with disabilities within prisons and gated institutions.

Disability Liberated includes an altar building in conjunction with a Sins Invalid performance centering the stories and voices of people at threat of and surviving violence within the intersections of ableism and the prison industrial complex.

There will be no charge for the event.

Artists currently include Leroy Moore, Kiyaan Abadani, Patty Berne, Nomy Lamm, Lisa Ganser, Todd Herman, Micah Bazant, Olegario Martinez, and Damon Johnson.

Sun, March 8, 5:30p, Altar construction with community, 120 Kroeber Hall (College/Bancroft), UC Berkeley

Mon, March 9, 4:30p, Performance, Booth Auditorium in Boalt Hall (College/Bancroft), UCB

For all of you who desire sex-positive entertainment produced by and for the diverse queer community.

For all of you who yearn for a show featuring heroes who are sex workers, kinksters, transgender, and people of color.

We wrote a rock opera for you.

WildcardxFaust interweaves the narratives of D. Faust, Jay Very, and Apaulo Hart:

Faust: A demon in a church of brimstone, nudity, and vulnerability finds that striptease becomes a form of revelation.

Wild Card: A kinky, queer comedy about a transmasculine sex worker seeking human connection.

Join us for an evening of inspiration, magic, shadows, and wonder!
