THE SEATTLE PUBLIC LIBRARY PRESENTS ‘LEGENDARY CHILDREN’ AT SEATTLE ART MUSEUM MAY 10
The Seattle Public Library will host Legendary Children, an evening of representation, dance, empowerment, art and social justice that celebrates queer and transgender people of color from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Friday, May 10 at the Seattle Art Museum (SAM), 1300 1st Ave.
This event is free, although drinks and food are not, and everyone is welcome. This event is all ages, but you must be 21+ and have ID to drink. Registration is encouraged.
Legendary Children will have live performances and DJs, alongside art by some of the Pacific Northwest’s most talented queer artists. Everyone is invited to join in the conversations sparked by SAM’s special exhibition “Jeffrey Gibson: Like A Hammer,” which will be open and free during this event. We’ll also have a deluxe Seattle Public Library reading station focused on trans and queer Black, Indigenous and People Of Color (BIPOC) authors.
This event is made possible by The Seattle Public Library Foundation. It is presented in partnership with Indigenize Productions, Somos Seattle, Pride Asia, Seattle Art Museum, and The University of Washington Q Center.
The Library’s dynamic approach to building community that enriches lives includes programming that brings people, information and ideas together to respect and embrace the well-being of the people we serve. We celebrate Seattle’s many cultures by forming strong partnerships with community organizations.
Celebrate Legendary Children on May 10! Our May edition celebrates Indigenous Sovereignty and house-and-ball culture, along with our broader QTPOC (Queer and Trans) communities.
Legendary Children is where arts and social justice get real, with QTPOC voices ringing loud and clear.
Enjoy fab in-gallery performances, hot DJs, and the sublime artistry of the Pacific Northwest’s house-and-ball performers and premier drag royalty (kings, queens, and the crowns in between). Come for the art, stay for the public runway. Plus, don’t miss the SAM special exhibition “Like a Hammer” by Jeffrey Gibson and a deluxe Seattle Public Library reading station focused on trans and queer BIPOC authors.
