Her HRC in the Triangle Presents: Femme, Butch or Blend… Express Yourself!
A night of spoken word and performance art to benefit the Human Rights Campaign featuring performances by Stacey Kirby, June Sadler and Ann Arader!
|Stacey L. Kirby
Stacey L. Kirby is an interdisciplinary artist whose work prompts discussion about addictions to new technology, online communication and the societal shifts from public to private spaces. Kirby has been awarded artist residencies at the Headlands Center for the Arts, the Atlantic Center for the Arts, and Artspace as a Regional Emerging Artist. Kirby will be performing her interactive performance art piece, VALIDnation, exploring civil rights and the validity of communities, families, and individuals throughout the United States. Kirby's initial motivation came from the campaigning for and against the passing of Amendment One, which bans civil rights for same-sex families in North Carolina. The fuel for her "political performative" fire continues to burn as our nation’s states pass legislation limiting same-sex couples' rights, women’s access to healthcare, voting rights and cutting unemployment benefits. Stacy lives in Durham, NC.
June Sadler is a writer with vision. Inside the creative mind of June Sadler is a place she has designated the BLASH! Universe. BLASH is an acronym standing for Be Like A Super HER(o). In that space, her imagination fuels an expanding star enveloping interactive media. The universe includes documentary films, uplifting imagery, and rhythmic verse bundled in melodies wandering the musical galaxies between soul and hip hop. Laden with memories of childhood cartoons of super-powered characters, June is heavily influenced in her writing by the hero’s pledge to do good. The Scorpion Series is her second internet publication. The premiere e-novella of the series entitled Dada’s Return – Scorpion: Sting is an introduction to Dada’s life of intrigue as a rogue African-American undercover spy. Dada’s clever antics coupled with her teams almost prank like precision is the adventure from your dreams. June was involved in the QPCC (Queer People of Color Collaborative) this past fall and has been involved with HRC. June is originally from Harlem, New York and studied at UNCG and now resides in North Carolina.

Aside from having a long term career as a graphic designer/technical consultant, Ann is re-inventing herself as a performing artist with a unique and original sound. Ann is originally from Chappaqua, New York and now lives in Cary, NC. She is a freelance musician and performs in the Raleigh area and also works part-time as the Art Program Coordinator for a local area non-profit.
