UCLA LGBT Resource Center 220 Westwood Plaza B36 Student Activities Center get directions

Mariposa means butterfly in Spanish, but it is also a common name for queers, especially queers of color. Like the radio program, The Moth Radio Hour, The Mariposa Hour aims to “connect us as humans and foster mutual understanding” through storytelling. Five queer Chicanx authors stand up and share their true stories of Queer Love, Blood, and Memory in front of a live audience. Refreshments will be served. Hosted by the UCLA LGBTQ Studies Program and the UCLA LGBT Resource Center; co-sponsored by the UCLA English Department. Free and open to the public.
