House of Living Colors
Endangered Species
In English

The drag collective House of Living Colors focuses on the climate crisis, showing that a diversity of identities is as essential for the survival of our society as is biodiversity for nature. Endangered Species draws on the knowledge and experience of queer and trans people of color and their ancestral and spiritual connection to nature. In a multimedia performance combining voguing, spoken word, live music and other, non-Western art forms, they make it clear: QTBIPoC are indispensable for the evolution of our world, our society, our community.

HOUSE OF LIVING COLORS is an open drag and performance collective particularly for queer and trans black and people of color (QTBIPoC) that was created after several experiences of exclusion from the mainstream queer community.
