In Conversation: leZlie lee kam and Ty Sloane

Hosted by Buddies in Bad Times Theatre

Buddies’ Youth / Elders Projects are an ongoing response to the need for building intergenerational spaces, conversations, and relationships in our queer community. The program launched in 2016 with a year-long project that culminated in the acclaimed theatrical production The Youth / Elders Project on Buddies mainstage, and continues with a regular program of community conversations, knowledge sharing, and more.

In Conversation hosted by LEZLIE LEE KAM + TY SLOANE

As a global pandemic disproportionately affects our queer communities, the need to create space for queer intergenerational dialogue is more important now than ever. In Conversation is a space for formal and informal discussions about salient issues within our communities. You are invited to participate and talk, or just listen. Some sessions will feature specially invited guests to speak intimately on the themes and topics.

In Conversation is open to queer youth, elders, and folks of any age interested in conversation across queer generations. No artistic experience is necessary.
