Tue, 8 Nov 2016 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Location: Madison Union Ballroom
Join J Mase III and Vita E., the duo known as BlackTransMagick, as they perform, share their experiences and provide time to reflect on the intersectionality of identity.
J Mase III is a Black/trans/queer poet based in Seattle by way of NYC. As an educator, J Mase has worked with thousands of community members in the US, the UK and Canada on the needs of LGBTQIA youth and adults in spaces such as k-12 schools, universities, faith communities and restricted care facilities among others. He is a blogger for the Huffington Post and the founder of awQward, the first ever talent agency for trans & queer people of color. 

Vita E is the founder of TWOC Poetry, a brand/YouTube channel she created to increase proper media representation and knowledge for marginalized groups; focusing primarily on experiences as a trans woman of color. Her series, "Tea (T)ime," touches on subjects from racism to respectability politics, and everything between and outside. When she is not performing, she spends a great deal of her time as the Social Media/Communications Coordinator for awQward talent agency, the first agency of its kind to specifically uplift the work of trans and queer artists of color.
