ABOUT THE CALL:

How does our relationship to queerness affect our relationship to white supremacy and the intersections of our identity? In this call, we will be exploring queerness as an access point to deconstructing white supremacy.


ABOUT THE FACILITATORS:

Roxy Schoenfeld, MA, LCAT, RDT, is a Drama Therapist based in Brooklyn, NY. She works at Seamark PROS, an outpatient mental health program, as the Senior Recovery Counselor, with adults who carry diagnoses of serious and persistent mental illness. In somewhat less pathologizing terms, she works with folks who, for example, have experiences such as hearing voices, overpowering emotions, or are mandated to treatment as an alternative to incarceration. She previously participated in a few therapeutic theatre experiences, most recently, NYU’s Queer as Performance as an ensemble member, assistant director, and sparkly unicorn. She is also in her third and final year of training at DvT NYC. Roxy considers her queerness to be a critical entry point to her work, as she approaches drama therapy through radical left politics and seeks to continue to learn how to decolonize her practice.
 

Truc T. Nguyen, MA, RDT, LMFT, : Truc is a gender-queer, 1.5 gen Vietnamese American, with bi-coastal influences, who has been involved with the DvT community for almost 10 years. They have worked in diverse community-based programs for over 15 years and is experienced in presenting on anti-oppression and cultural competency issues. He has worked in multiple clinical settings including hospitals, community based mental health with children and families, the foster care system, and is currently a Wellness counselor at a High school in the Bay area. She is passionate about integrating an anti-oppression/ social justice lens as a Drama therapist/ DvT practitioner and supervisor, sees psychotherapy as a tool for revolution, and believes in walking the talk for individual and community accountability in and out of the playspace.
