Co-Lab: A Queen’s Liberation Story is a collaborative performance and programming series taking place at the Contemporary Arts Center. This Co-LAB program is generously supported by ArtsWave.
Jori An Cotton and Desirae “The Silent Poet” Hosley will collaborate as writers/ directors to produce A Queen's Liberation Story. A Queen’s Liberation Story will give black and brown women/womxn a reassurance that talking about sex should not be shamed or hidden. Reclaiming your power in your sex story starts with you! Liberation within empowers a narrative that doesn’t shy away from reproductive health yet gives women/womxn the tools and knowledge needed to take ownership of their bodies with the help of Contemporary Arts Center, Cradle Cincinnati and Queens Village Cincinnati.
