This event is presented by Break the Chains.

Featuring: bell's roar + Anjimile!

This tour is an initiative started by Sean Desiree of bell’s roar. The goal of their music is to reinforce solidarity within the movement and create affirming spaces for queer and trans people of color. With the release of their debut full length album “We Carry Us” they want to support other LGBTQ artists of color. It's vital for us to find DIY ways to support our community because in 2018 Trump plans to cut funding for the arts. ART FUNDS ART TOUR uses ticket sales, partnerships with brands and organizations to provide artist grants and performance stipends to underfunded artists in each city.

In order to raise enough money to give out the grant and performance stipends we need people power. Come out and invite your friends to support your local queer and trans artists of color.

THANK YOU TO OUR LOCAL SPONSORS!
