Southern Fried Queer Pride 

When: Oct. 19-21 2017
Price: $7-$20

Queer pride and the South have historically been oxymoronic, but Southern Fried Queer Pride, a group based in Atlanta, Georgia, is looking to change that for the better. SFQP is a queer/trans arts and advocacy group that aims to create safe, open spaces for the celebration of "vibrant communities of the Southern United States." Its three-day festival, with a variety of arts events focusing on queerness as a political identity, began in Atlanta and now expands into Durham for the first time, targeted at all age groups and demographics. The offerings include a DIY art party at the Mothership (Thursday, 6 p.m.), a queer dance party at the Pinhook (Friday, 10 p.m.), an afternoon of workshops and skill-shares at the LGBTQ Center of Durham (Saturday, 1 p.m.), and a queer variety show at The Bar (Saturday, 6 p.m.). Although there is a suggested sliding cover charge, those who are interested in participating will not be turned away for lack of funds. —Aditi Dholakia
