I’ve been bussing and driving (welllll sitting in a van, not actually driving) around the United States for the past 4 weeks. there’s been amazing ups and devastating downs. I’m sitting in the New Orleans airport waiting for a flight to Seattle. Thankyou to everyone who let me stay at their house, hung out with me, gave me the sweetest gifts, helped set up film screenings + shows, and came to film screenings. it’s been a really important experience for me and I loved meeting so many of my tumblr followers and seeing friends who I hadn’t seen in years. I wish I could have stayed in some cities for a much longer time. until next time xoxoxoxo
FIERCE FEST is a radical queer & feminist D.I.Y. festival dedicated to dismantling oppression, building community and empowering marginalized voices.
From the manifesto:
"Because we can use art and music as tools for empowerment, reclaiming space, solidarity and education.
Because we refuse to accept unsafe, oppressive conditions for marginalized people in our communities and the underrepresentation of trans, queer and female artists.
Let’s build intentional, accessible, all-ages safer spaces in which consent, call-outs and accountability are encouraged, as well as continuous learning and growth.
Our ambition is fierce when it comes to standing up for marginalized people and inspiring our community. Let’s be loud, take back space, take care of each other and TAKE ACTION!
Bellingham, WA, October 3rd-5th 2014. We acknowledge that this event is taking place on colonized Lummi and Coast Salish territory.”Pre-order tickets and help fund Fierce Fest here!
