Darkmatter returns as part of the 
Queer NY International Arts Festival @ La MaMa!

Darkmatter (Janani Balasubramanian & Alok Vaid‐Menon) is a trans, South Asian spoken‐word duo “hivemind flipping the scantron on your model minority narrative, returning that basic gayze, and spitting anti‐colonial futures.” They perform regularly at universities across the country and venues in New York City. Individually, they have done social justice work at local organizations such as the Queer Detainee Empowerment Project and the Audre Lorde Project. Balasubramanian is also a writer at Black Girl Dangerous (an online forum for QTPOC).
