Can I Kick It Too?: An exploration of Queerness in hip hop

NAC Hip Hop Theatre Festival

  Feb 1, 2024 - 1 PM EST   60 minutes with no intermission.

How do queer artists thrive in an artform that has historically been unwelcoming—even hostile—to people who identify as LGBTQ+? Four Canadian artists sit down for a candid live conversation to explore what it means to find a place in a culture that has typically not embraced an important part of their identity and how artists like Lil Nas X have broken barriers in the genre’s modern era.
