Curated by Adil Mansoor for My People: A QTPOC Festival of the Arts

Join us for an afternoon of food and dialogue interrogating notions of home. Organizer Celeste Scott facilitates a conversation asking QTPOC artists and activists about equitable housing. Celeste is a frontline advocate for the Queer and Trans communities of color. For this conversation, she assembles a panel to discuss gentrification and the pushing out of Black and Brown QTPOC. The panelists together will tackle the following questions: Who is Pittsburgh most livable for? How important is culture in a neighborhood? What needs to change for QTPOC community to feel at home in Pittsburgh?

Black Unicorn’s Bekezela Mguni opens the dialogue with a family-style meal in collaboration with Chef Oliver Pinder. The lunch menu will include Coconut Rice, Trini Style Stewed Beef & Trini Style Stewed Tofu with Mushrooms, Arugula Salad with Acorn Squash and Toasted Walnuts and Homemade Spiced Sorrel.
