She performs it and more tonight.

The Auburn Avenue Research Library will host Dr. E. Patrick Johnson, the Carolos Montezuma Professor of Performance Studies and African American studies at Northwestern University, who will discuss his latest publication, “Black. Queer. Southern. Women, An Oral History.” Drawn from the life narratives of more than 70 African American queer women who were born, raised and continue to reside in the American South, this book powerfully reveals the way these women experience and express racial, sexual, gender and class identities – all linked by a place where such identities have generally placed them on the margins of society. Using methods of oral history and performance ethnography, Dr. Johnson’s work vividly enriches the historical record of racialized sexual minorities in the South and brings to light the realities of the region’s thriving black lesbian communities. Charis will sell books. This event is free and open to the public.

The divine Kelly Clarkson rocks the Infinite Energy Centre tonight with her “Meaning of Life” tour.
Updated for the Trump era, Topher Payne’s comedy/drama “Angry Fags” is an uncompromising Oscar Wilde-meets-Fight Club fantasia about how good ideas go bad, the destructiveness of toxic masculinity, and how no one is really afraid of gay guys. The success of the 2013 original prompted a renewed interest in a sociopolitical world that seemed wildly absurd at the time but may now be closer to reality than we could have ever imagined.
