#SexyMF30 was a 2-day virtual symposium, celebrating Prince for 30 years of the Love Symbol album, on 26-27 March 2022 (Sat-Sun)!

There were 31 speakers (academics, music journalists, podcasters, authors, and independent scholars), 3 roundtable discussions, and 12 presentations!

We had 479 people register on the Airmeet platform from 22 countries including the US, UK, Canada, Netherlands, Australia, Belgium, France, Germany, Japan, Spain, and India. We also had international speakers from the UK, the Netherlands, and Scotland. There was a steady-state of, approximately, 160 to 220 people at ALL times over the course of 2 days for approximately 8-9 hours per day.

This event was FREE, but please consider donating to the PRN Alumni Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit officially formed in 2017 and founded by former employees of Paisley Park and the international icon Prince. The group’s mission is to continue the generosity of their late boss who supported opportunities for underprivileged youth to grow in music, tech, arts, and education, and helped alumni members in need. The foundation also supports urban farming initiatives that create sources of healthy foods where they are otherwise scarce. To learn more about the PRN Alumni Foundation, visit prnalumni.org.

#SexyMF30 was a polished solid production, curated by De Angela L. Duff.

And, of course, massive thanks to our wonderful sponsors: NYU Tandon, NYU Integrated Design & Media (IDM), NYU Office of Global Inclusion, Diversity, and Strategic Innovation, NYU Institute of African American Affairs and the Center for Black Visual Culture, NYU Photography & Imaging, NYU Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality, NYU 370 Jay Project, NYU Liberal Studies, and NYU Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music!
