December Events

Sparkle, sparkle my dears, the end of 2013 is near. This month offers us more than real or faux reasons to have snacks and light candles, things I myself encourage year round!

Here are some fab events I’m part of this month, with details below:

  • Sun 12/1: Opentoe Peepshow, 7:30p @ Branded Saloon [fb event]
  • Sat 12/7: Rebel Cupcake Leather Family Holiday, 8p @ TNT [fb event]
  • Mon 12/16: Executive Queerness, 7p @ Dixon Place [fb event]

To counteract the holidayze overwhelm, here’s a short list of some upcoming non-holiday days of note:

Time & Cost: Sunday Dec 1, doors 7p, show 7:30p *sharp* — we sell out so come early! $3-$10, no one turned away for lack of funds // this event is volunteer-run and the door split supports artists directly.

Heels on Wheels is a Brooklyn-based group of interdisciplinary artists who create performance-based cultural works and community events that have a feminist and radical agenda, are produced from sites of femme/inine-positive queer embodiment, and reveal the power in under-represented communities.
