CHOP The Stigma Kiki Ball!

HIV/AIDS stigma is getting CHOPPED! MORPH & Southern Fried Queer Pride are happy to bring you the Chop The Stigma Kiki Ball, happening on Friday, August 23rd at The Mammal Gallery (at the MET Atlanta). All in collaboration with Living Walls, the City Speaks' #StartTalkingStopHIV campaign!

Featuring Byrell The Great of Qween Beat!

A "Kiki", by definition, is a low-key function, including dancing and friendly competition – always fun, never too serious. The Kiki scene is focused heavily on community, and events are often run by up-and-comers. Members of the ballroom community use Kiki balls to practice for the mainstream balls but also form smaller houses and balls within, allowing younger performers to harness their craft in a smaller setting.

Categories are:
Virgin Runway
- Present a misconception about HIV/AIDS then hit the runway.
Virgin Vogue
- Name a HIV/AIDS resource then hit the floor.
OTA Runway - $75
- Bring a prop that represents chopping the stigma of HIV/AIDS.
Tag Team Performance - $200
- Legends and Virgins. Each team must wear one solid color showing unity.
OTA Realness - $50
OTA Face - $50
OTA Performance - $50
- Show us your heart! Display a heart on your clothes to represent love for all.

Doors for the event open at 10PM. This event is all ages.
Door cover is FREE. You must RSVP for this event here: https://link.dice.fm/kikiball

The Mammal Gallery at the MET Atlanta is located at 680 Murphy Avenue SW Atlanta, GA 30310. Parking is free at the venue. We highly suggest taking Lyft or Uber. The West End MARTA Station is across the street.

SFQP Artist Talk with Saiel Solomon!

SFQP Artist Talk with Saiel Solomon!

Southern Fried Queer Pride/SFQP Artist Talks are a new series of talks and workshops featuring local Atlanta artists sharing their work, experiences, and insight!

GET TO KNOW: Saiel Solomon
About her work: "I've become obsessed with documenting my individual growth and internal travel, with death and time, with what it truly means to understand and perceive. I've also become obsessed with the connection within the patterns that make any of this matter in the first place. Most of my works are conversations I have with myself; others are conversations I want to influence. My intention is to be sharp and precise but vague enough to allow room for movement within the idea. I'm focused on honesty and becoming as clear as I can possibly be. But that's been like digging to the center of the earth with no tools or experience. or maybe its been more like digging up and out from the center of the earth with no tools or experience."


Saiel will be discussing her work, and her experience as a working professional.. Feel free to bring your portfolio/CV to this event.

The talk happens at 6PM on Thursday, May 9th at the Atlanta Contemporary (535 Means Street Northwest Atlanta, GA 30318).
