Dion Harrison is a teaching artist on a journey of personal healing through creativity both onstage and with the written word. As a Washington, D.C., native, Dion found that validation of his experiences with age, race, violence, sexuality, and spirituality would not be given to him as a queer Black man, for whom the price of peace and safety in almost any community is erasure. Knowing that this battle to be seen does not begin or end with him, Dion's work in community activism and platform creation aims to expand the definition of reality, its potential, and poses the question, “what do we do about it?”
