I wrote this last year, in November I think, at a time when things felt quite heavy. It’s now part of #femmetopia festival at @vfdalston there’s an amazing weekend program, check it out if you’re in London.
Today @ 4pm “When I was young and couldn’t find any lesbian artists I knew there was a blank screen, as I’ve often said, that I could fill or at least begin to fill. And I could give inspiration to others to fill it." - Barbara Hammer
We're showing Hammer's THE FEMALE CLOSET today at 4pm with Fringe! Film Fest at The Rio Cinema. It's introduced by the wonderful Tara Brown and followed by Liz Rosenfeld's Dyketactics Revisited.
It's a special 20th anniversary screening and you should definitely come along if you interested in any of the following: lesbians // queers // art // drag // film // sex // being out of closets #femmetopia#femmetopiafestival
Don’t miss! Over the next few days #Femmetopia festival is taking place at @vfdalston. A festival of art, performance and protest, celebrating and exploring intersectional collective power! Go to vfdalston.com for more info - the programme is amazing
I don’t even know what I was doing here but I know I’m lucky. I’m lucky I was invited, I’m lucky I heard the poetry, I’m lucky people heard me read my poetry, I’m lucky I cried, I’m lucky I met the amazing (and no I’m not fucking exaggerating to say amazing) people I did. Thank you #FemmeTopia festival @vfdalston@travisalabanza for the night that right now feels bigger than anything else. That love was spread. Thank you.
