About Roy Kinsey:
A Chicago born, queer-identified, rapper and librarian, Roy Kinsey’s latest album Blackie is a message-oriented project that covers the effects of racism, the Great Migration, addiction, violence, mental illness and sexuality.
About Mother Nature:
Mother Nature is the powerful and undeniable energy of emcees Klevah and T.R.U.T.H. Never afraid to speak on societal ills, these creatives masterfully weave political rhetoric into music you can party to. The Chicago-based emcees fuse hard-hitting hip hop, melodic rhythms and boundless lyricism to raise our collective consciousness.
SLO ‘MO: SLOW JAMS FOR QUEER FAM is Chicago’s party for lovers with Kristen Kaza and Audio Jack, playing R&B, soul, hip hop, jazz and funk from the seventies to today. Slo ‘Mo is a party that unites people of all identities, bodies and expressions through the celebration of slow jams and queer community. Parties take place throughout Chicago including its monthly residency the third Thursday of each month at the Whistler.
