The “Anti-Racism as Organizational Compass” series offers the opportunity to listen to intimate conversations with six BIPOC-led arts organizations that center anti-racism in mission and practice.
Our dialogue facilitator, Masharika Prejean Maddison, spoke to key stakeholders of Sins Invalid, including Nomy Lamm and Lettie Robles-Tovar. Sins Invalid is a disability justice based performance project in San Francisco, CA that incubates and celebrates artists with disabilities, centralizing artists of color and LGBTQ / gender-variant artists as communities who have been historically marginalized. Led by disabled people of color, Sins Invalid’s performance work explores the themes of sexuality, embodiment and the disabled body, developing provocative work where paradigms of “normal” and “sexy” are challenged, offering instead a vision of beauty and sexuality inclusive of all bodies and communities.
