After witnessing the murder of her friend, Kenya, a trans woman sex worker, embarks on a path of struggle and search for justice that leads her to face the fear and pain of seeing herself reflected in that tragic ending.
Introduction & Performance by Papaya Kuir
Papaya Kuir is an intersectional feminist collective for and by trans and queer Latinx asylum seekers, refugees and migrants in the Netherlands. Musicians, performers, writers and artists. They chose a name that re-introduces the use of the word papaya (slang for female genital tract in several Latin American countries) and Kuir which is a corruption of the word queer, a nickname with a twist.
Through their fundraising campaigns they want to be that bridge that connects human beings in need with those who can provide help. Through their art projects they want to show the world that they are more than just migrants and refugees, they are also talented people. And through their visibility they want The Netherlands to know that Latinx queers exist and that this country need to look at them too, that they matter, that their voices count and must be heard!
