Reading at Red Umbrella Diaries + Femme/Activism

NYC folks, I’m reading tomorrow [Thursday, July 1] at Red Umbrella Diaries, a literary night, hostessed by the inimitable Audacia Ray. 8pm @ Happy Ending, 302 Broome St. Joining me are Christina Cicchelli, Izzy Oneiric, Rope Boi, and Busty Kitten.

If you’re not able to make the event, you could just read the piece I’ll be presenting, as a version of it was published in the May issue of the fantastically queer No More Potlucks, but it won’t quite be the same without you there.

Also – I want to make sure you *all* know that the sure-to-be transformative Femme2010: No Restrictions Conference is taking place in Oakland Aug 20-22, and it’s only $75 – but regular registration rates end July 15. If you can’t go, you can still read our blog and look into all the performers/presenters on the website, to get inspired by ferocious awesome folks.

NYC’s Femme Family is having Summer meetings: July 6, 18, Aug 1, 15 and 29, and all femme and femme-questioning folks are welcome to come. You can get more info on our blog.

If you need some inspiration for your actions towards liberation, may I suggest looking over the People’s Movement Assembly Resolutions from this year’s US Social Forum:

Last, please send support + love to our friends & allies in Toronto. It got ugly there this weekend at the G20 and while a lot of peoples’ resistance is blooming, they can use support too as they resist the criminalization and brutalization of their rightful protests.
