“Queer. Futures. Past: I’m a Ghost and So Are You” is a multimedia ritual performance and installation. An offering to the LGBTQ+ community of Baltimore City to collectively explore notions of queer lineage by summoning spirits of the past to build a brighter queer future.

“Queer Futures Past: I am Ghost and So Are You” examines personal and inherited queer erasure. Rae Red, Cliff Doby, Skye Fort, nine guest performers and two visual artists (listed below), playfully address their secret, ignored, and partially imagined queer lineage through a month-long installation at Current Space. Using a playful adaptation of spirit photography and sceances of the 1840s as the visual landscape of the piece, Queer Futures Past crafts a non-linear narrative experience combining personal, familial, and cultural histories, summoning spirits, and examining notions of harm and healing.
