brOWN//out is the “South Asian” community stage at Pride Toronto. It is a mixtape of adventures. Rushing from waters, mountains and plains of homeland(s) through the diaspora and back. Over and over again. brOWN//out is a community space for “South Asian” queer and trans artists: singers, poets, dancers, drag and burlesque artists, musicians and more. Influenced and supported by a multitude of artists, organizers, agitators, dreamers and do-ers, curated by Anu Radha (she/her).
*the term “South Asian” is used strategically: there is no way to adequately represent all the complexities of having identities connected to “South Asia,” which can include diasporic, Nepali, NRI, Tamil, Indo-Caribbean, Oriya-speaking, brown, Fijian, Maldivian, mixed-race, Pakistani, and more. The inadequateness of the term means that many “South Asian” community spaces have perpetuated the harm of exclusion, in particular of Black “South Asian” folks, Dalit folks and more. brOWN//out can be, and needs to be: a place for disrupting these exclusions, collectively dreaming and (re)building.
