Y’all Come Back: Stories of Queer Southern Migration is a project of love and grit, created by Queer Southern artists to tell the rich and layered stories of migration to and from the U.S. South.
The project seeks works that explore:
– personal and community stories of Queer migration to and from the U.S. South
– catalysts and connections of migration such as race, class, gender, ability, queerness, citizenship, etc
– impacts migration has on the communities (rural, urban, across borders, and everything in between) where Queer Southerners migrate to and from
– direct and indirect displacement of marginalized people from their homes because of Queer Southern migration
– tensions, connections, and questions of what “Home” is
– diversity of identities, cultures, and stories of Queer Southerners
– Surprise us!
