Tues April 27 Sarah Sarai & Adrienne Baldassano at Women’s & Trans’ Poetry Jam -Bluestockings
Women’s & Trans’ Poetry Jam & Open Mike

Tuesday April 27th 7PM – 9PM

Feature Writers: Sarah Sarai & Adrienne Baldassano

Sarah Sarai’s poems are charged with the terrible presence of the now and the dangerous fact of words. This is poetry as it should be. Scary, strange, generous, intensely in a physical world while illuminating an unimaginable spiritual world. This is writing that sings. The song it sings is the song of our hearts.

Adrienne Baldassano has, all too often, found hirself caught between male and female. Through hir poetry, ze seeks to find and define a space for all those who do not fit into binary oppositions, be it male/female, up/down, or past/future.

NYC Dyke march is this Saturday June 26. http://www.dykemarchnyc.org

Lesbian Sex Mafia will be represented - if you want to meet up with us we'll be at the Lion on the left in front of the library. We'll be wearing lsm t-shirts and we have a banner so you should be able to spot us. March starts at 5pm, but I'll be at the lion by around 4:30.

About the March:
The Dyke March is a protest march, not a parade -- we don't ask for a permit, because we have the right to protest. We recognize that we must organize amongst ourselves to fight for our rights, our safety, and for visibility. Thousands of dykes take over the streets every year in celebration of LBTQ women and to protest against ongoing discrimination, harassment, and anti-LBTQ violence in schools, on the job, in our families, and on the streets.

Come join us!

cinderella 06-23-2010 02:16 PM

Sharon Bridgforth in NYC
 
Sharon Bridgforth is reading in NYC on December 16th

Book release party 12/16/10 in New York City
Experiments in a Jazz Aesthetic
Art, Activism, Academia, and the Austin Project

6PM – 8PM at New Dramatists
424 West 44th Street,
New York, New York 10036
Readers include:
Omi Osun Joni L. Jones, Sharon Bridgforth, Monique Cortez, Carole Metellus, Angela Kariotis, Jaclyn Pryor, Ana Maurine Lara.
Please RSVP by calling 212-757-6960.
This event is free. Books will be available for sale.

In Austin, Texas, in 2002, a group of artists, activists, and academics led by performance studies scholar Omi Osun Joni L. Jones formed the Austin Project (tAP), which meets annually in order to provide a space for women of color and their allies to build relationships based on trust, creativity, and commitment to social justice by working together to write and perform work in the jazz aesthetic.

Inspired by this experience, this book is both an anthology of new writing and a sourcebook for those who would like to use creative writing and performance to energize their artistic, scholarly, and activist practices. Theoretical and historical essays by Omi Osun Joni L. Jones describe and define the African American tradition of art-making known as the jazz aesthetic, and explain how her own work in this tradition inspired her to start tAP.

OWS Women's Action
 
Nov 25th, 1PM Foley Sq.

RAISE OUR VOICES!

Everyday around the world women-identified persons survive different forms of violence. Physical violence leaves us with traumatic scars. Economic violence causes us to struggle to feed our families. Sexual violence in our homes and on our streets causes us to feel shame. Political violence silences the power of our voices to make decisions in society. Military violence divides nations of women who want peace.

We say no more! We want respect, equity, compassion, peace, security and healing for ourselves, our children, our communities and our world.

Wall Street is violence against women. Corporations get nearly 70% of their profit from women workers who earn $2 a day. In the U.S., women make as low as $0.52 for every dollar a man makes. Women of color are 70% of the global poor. More than 15 million of our children live in poverty in the U.S., the richest nation in the world. Women remain strong! We raise our voices to promote a fair and just economic system!

Women’s bodies & voices are under attack. Individuals disrespect our bodies with street harassment, rape, and other forms of physical & sexual violence. 1 in 6 American women has been a victim of attempted or completed rape. The courts, cops and lawyers continue to blame us for this violence. Media corporations make billions with music and films that disgrace our bodies, minds and spirits. And now, state governments in the U.S. have created restrictions on voting which shut out the voices of women of color at the polls. Women remain strong! We proclaim our right to peace, legal justice, respectful images and voting access!

We are not cheap labor, sexual objects or people to be disregarded!

We use the strength of our voices to demand respect, justice, peace, fairness, voting rights, wealth and a living wage!

***trans, gender-varient women are welcome & encouraged to attend***

(please share far & wide!)
