Memes convened former Los Angeles Queer Nationals to talk about the group’s historic use of slogans and stickers as a form of social protest and aesthetic intervention. The panel discussion was followed by a sticker-making workshop.

Participating Los Angeles Queer Nation activists and authors included: Michael du Plessis, Kathleen Chapman, Judy Ornelas Sisneros. HIV/AIDS activist-scholar  Jih-Fei Cheng of Scripps College also participated on the panel. The discussion was moderated by USC gender studies professor Karen Tongson. Following the discussion, the participatory sticker-making workshop engaged and encouraged brainstorming for the future of queer activism in Los Angeles.

The event focused on HIV/AIDS, art, literature, ephemera, protest, and Los Angeles LGBT history in order to honor queer activism and the diversity of protest expressions—underscoring queer history in our past, present, and future.
