Class Experience

Richmond Art Center celebrates Pride with this special online event. Join PerSia as she reads 'A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo' by Jill Twiss. This event is for kids and their families.

About PerSia: With a pedigree from weekly performances at the late, iconic Esta Noche, PerSia's trajectory has gone on to include art curation, stand-up, television, and maybe a quinceañera or two, in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and México. Currently she is a regular performer in the nationally acclaimed "Drag Queen Story Hour" as well as an educator in residence at the Children's After School Arts (CASA) program in the San Francisco Unified School District profiled on KQED Arts and National Public Radio.

About Drag Queen Story Hour: Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) is just what it sounds like—drag queens reading stories to children in libraries, schools, and bookstores. DQSH captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models. In spaces like this, kids are able to see people who defy rigid gender restrictions and imagine a world where people can present as they wish, where dress up is real.
