South Florida Gay News profiles Wright Muir, a law professor and co-founder of Thou Art Woman, “an event series that celebrates LBT women and their allies through narrative, performance, and visual arts.”
The article describes Wright Muir’s multifaceted law career, her early life and family, and her coming out as gender-nonconforming and a lesbian in 2013. She helped to launch Thou Art Woman the following year, and it has since “expanded and evolved into a three-day weekend event that features visual and performing arts, networking mixers, and tons of live music,” writes reporter Carina Mask. “It’s a place where women can speak freely and express themselves and talk about subjects such as oppression, modern-day feminism, race, and marginalization.”
The event series had to be postponed in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but Wright Muir says she hopes to archive its videos and other materials for posterity, “while moving forward to produce virtual events to keep our community connected, engaged and entertained in 2021 and beyond.”
The article also delves into the history of racism and segregation in South Florida, and how this history repeated itself for Wright Muir in the form of an altercation in a public swimming pool in 2020.
