Pxssy Palace & BBZ are teaming up to host SHOW LUV!, a fundraising event on February 16th to help raise funds in support of Kai & Naeem’s gender-affirming surgery. We as a community understand the importance of raising our siblings up, affirming one another, supporting each other and finding new ways to fluidly and to radically love one another. So this Valentine’s instead of seeing the same cis-het love stories on your timeline and your news feed, come through and experience love in ALL its forms.
SHOW LUV is all about love, so in order for everyone to have the best night and live their best lives please keep some things at the front of your mind, this means respecting one another, listening to boundaries, feeling comfortable and making sure others do too whilst understanding the space and who its for. The policy is as always: ZERO TOLERANCE TO HARASSMENT OF ANY KIND! This includes transphobia, body shaming, racism, homophobia, xenophobia and ableism. This is a space where no prejudice will be accepted if you aren’t acting correctly and respectfully you will be asked to leave. Please be reminded that both Pxssy Palace and BBZ prioritise queer womxn, trans, and non-binary people of color so QTIPOC to the front please!
Naeem Davis, co-founder of collective BBZ London who hosts a club night specifically aimed at queer, trans and non-binary people of colour and Kai-Isaiah Jamal, a spoken word poet/performer and writer who builds dialogue on often the ‘unspoken’ are two powerful and important members of our community both aiming to live their best lives the way they want to!
Naeem and Kai are planning on getting top surgery in March 2019 and need to secure the funds before the appointment date. Their aim is £20,000 which covers the surgery price and extra funds that will help contribute to the time spent healing and all the materials needed for aftercare. It is important as members of this community that we not only support each other but uplift and inspire others to fulfil their dreams and become the person they want to be. All funds raised will ensure that they receive the highest quality treatment and support following the procedures. All the donations will support private medical care, living costs whilst healing at home, all the materials and treatments for post-op scarring.
Come and shake a leg with Pxssy Palace and BBZ as they celebrate gifting two people with the biggest gift ever… FREEDOM! Here are all the details that you need to get involved and support Kai and Naeem.
