About the makers

Black Roots & Soil is a Made in Maas event brought to you by members of the Black and queer community that would love to celebrate Black Queer joy with you. Over the course of a few months they got together to create and curate an event. Because Black Queer people deserve more spaces that are designed by Black Queer people and are catering to Black Queer people. Places where we can show up as ourselves for ourselves and are free to celebrate Black Queer joy.
