A celebration of immigrant and POC queer identity at Solespace.

It’s pride month, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that all queer people feel equally celebrated. Official pride festivities have often been criticized for perpetuating a whitewashed picture of queerness, along with gay magazines and television shows. So, to assure that there is space for immigrant and people of color queers in Oakland’s pride parties this month, local artists Julio Salgado and Nicole Gonzales Medina are putting on Xotalicious at Solespace (1714 Telegraph Ave., Oakland) on Friday, June 10. The art show will feature six local immigrant and of color artists including Salgado, Medina, Yetunde Olagbaju, Soleil Summer, Chucha Marquez and Noemi Sha. Dj Jetia Deity and DJ Lady Ryan will be spinning the opening from 7–11 p.m.
