QTIPOC Dinners are a series of events MESA and Spectrum Center have created together to center the experiences of queer and trans indigenous students & students of color in a relaxed environment. Each dinner is hosted by a local individual we believe can bring a lot to the metaphorical (and actual) table and free food is provided to all who attend.

This month's host is Layla Mohammed Abdul-Jabbar. Here's a little more about her:
Layla Mohammed Abdul-Jabbar (she/her/hers) is a new media artist and animator based in Metro-Detroit. She is involved with the local DIY community, discussing intersectionality between topics such as mental health, queerness, and racial and religious inequalities. She finds inspiration from nightlife, body horror, Islamic architecture, and whatever’s popping on the Instagram explore page. Her latest piece In the Margins: Illuminating Islamic Queerness is an experimental documentary animation which investigates the intersection of faith, sexuality, and gender by following people who identify as queer and/or trans and Muslim. She graduated with her BFA at the University of Michigan’s Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design.

All dinners are hosted 5:30 to 7pm at 1443 Washtenaw. Reserve your spot at this dinner or any of the upcoming dinners at: http://bit.ly/QTIPOCfall2019
