A live performance event for International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia.
Featuring Britteney Black Rose Kapri and St. Bishop, with more guests to be announced!
Join PRISM LGBT+ Staff Network for a one-night only event as part of International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia at the Queen’s Film Theatre. With live performances by Chicagoan poet and spoken word artist Britteney Black Rose Kapri, Irish electronic and R&B artist St. Bishop, and more special guests still to be announced, Refraction explores the contemporary queer experience through music and poetry. Powerful, compelling, humorous, and arresting, this is an evening not to be missed, celebrating both local and international LGBTQ+ talent.
This event has been generously supported by the People and Culture Directorate and the Diversity and Inclusion Unit, and has been programmed in collaboration with the Naughton Gallery.
“Britteney Kapri writes with the tenacity of your favourite emcee and the gumption of your most outspoken Auntie. As profound as Eartha Kitt, as futuristic in her feminism as Grace Jones, as positively unabashed about her body as Josephine Baker, and as lyrically provocative as Cardi B; Kapri's multi-genre'd poetic offering is a new home for those unafraid of this brave cruel world.” - Mahogany L. Browne, author of Black Girl Magic and co-editor of The BreakBeatPoets Vol. 2: Black Girl Magic.
“St. Bishop is an Irish electronic and R&B artist, fusing elements of soul, experimental, and alternative pop. After teaching himself the piano at 19, the singer illustrates a sense of coming-of-age after struggling with self-acceptance issues and reiterating them into his smooth and sleek sound.”
