A collage of artworks from the Digital Carnival Z festival. The main two images are of Rye and Skim, while other images are layered with different amounts of transparency.

Event Description

Drag shows, parties, raves and now drag zoom rooms. Who are these events accessible to? Where do folx feel they belong and when do they feel gender dysmorphia/euphoria? Featuring recorded and live performances from Rye and Skim, the Workroom is a discussion space for people to explore drag, gender, and the challenges of being seen in digital and analog spaces.

Hosted by Skim and Rye, this event is open to all to attend, observe, and contribute but limited to 30 participants. Please book your spot early to avoid disappointment.

Accessibility: ASL interpretation, descriptive language, and automated captions in English will be provided throughout the event.

Please Note: In order to create a safe space for open dialogue and to protect the privacy of all participants, this event will not be recorded.
