Antonia Tsangaris is a white, queer, femme, disabled artist living and
working in Boston, MA. She has been drawing since she possessed the motor
skills to hold a crayon, and received her BFA from the School of the Museum
of Fine Arts, Boston, in 2009. She believes great art needs to be both
accessible and stimulating to the viewer and the creator, and strives to
find that balance. In addition to visual arts, Antonia is an accomplished
living statue, working at festivals, private parties, and corporate events
as well as busking. She is also writing a guide to etiquette/graphic novel.
Micah is a hip hop artist and a transman. He has been rocking stages for the
last 4 years, bringing you the best in articulate and queer hip hop. His
music focuses on the personal as the political, as well as his own journey
to self-discovery. He wants to make noise, and encourage others to be proud
of themselves. In his latest single, Did It On Em (
http://soundcloud.com/clustermag/did-it-on-em), he confronts the social
stigma of queer identities head on, and challenges his queer brethren to
hold their heads high, despite all the hate and negativity many are often
surrounded by.

Queer Tango Boston is a community dance group open to all skill levels.
