Casa Abierta

presented over Zoom to Benefit Bakeo pa' sobrevivir: Alcancía Brigada Cuir

The Neighbors paired with Puerto Rican LGBTQIA+, trans, non-binary and anti-racist art collective, House of Grace, for "Casa Abierta."

The event helped raise crucial funds for housing and essential services for trans/non-binary folx on the island, especially pressing in the face of COVID-19. Comedy, poetry, performance art, music, a cocktail masterclass, a salsa jams and live painting were combined to raise funds for "Bakeo pa' sobrevivir: Alcancía Brigada Cuir," an emergency fund ran by Espicy Nipples, La Sombrilla Cuir, and House of Grace, all transfeminist-led social justice groups working towards black, trans and queer liberation on the island. Latinx designer Carla Posada created original artwork for the event.

Featuring performances by Kathryn Allison, Pedro De León, Karl Michael Iglesias, Eduardo María, María Victoria Martinez, Bianca Medina, Beatriz Miranda, Ashton Muniz, LuisGa Nuñez, Zulienette Ralat, Suni Reyes, Xavier Reyes, Natalie Sosa Vázquez and Jennyvette Vega.
