Building 50: Walker Memorial, 50-250 (Rainbow Lounge)
142 MEMORIAL DR, Cambridge, MA 02139

Join us for dinner and conversation as we continue our series exploring multiple aspects of identity in a variety of religious and spiritual traditions. Hear from faith leaders about their journey through the intersections of sexual orientation, gender identity, and their religious, spiritual, or ethical tradition. All are welcome.

Described by The New York times as “a tour de force”, Mesma Belsaré is a professional dancer, painter and actor. Her studies also include the visual arts, Indian & European art history and Aesthetics. Belsaré is a member of MASALA (Boston’s South Asian LGBTQ+ group), and actively advocates for the visibility and acceptance of gender-nonconforming individuals, particularly those from South Asia. Belsaré will discuss the ancient Vedic view of LBGTQ+ people, who were considered an integral part of ancient Indian civilization. More information at www.mesmabelsare.com
