8/28 Butterflies and Bad Girl Legacies: Rainbow Reclamations Durham

20 08 2011

 

5pm-8pm

Sunday August 28th

Inspiration Station, Durham NC (email brokenbeautifulpress@gmail.com for directions)

 

 

 

Dedicated to your sacred sassy self! This session for women of color and and feminists of color who do not conform to the gender binary to talk about sex, survival, revenge and healing on our own terms. We deserve a space free from the policing and criminalizing norms about our sexuality as people of color and as gender transforming revolutions.

This will be a space where through the journey of Ntozake Shange’s Lady in Orange,… we can explore how we feel about the intergenerational criminalizing of our bodies. About the shade thrown inside and outside of our families about feminized folks who refused to play the game by patriarchy’s rules, the reclamation of the word “slut,” the shaming work of books like Steve Harvey’s “Act Like a Lady Think Like a Man” and the over-riding truth that wrong is not our name. We are so bad its good.

By popular demand and with infinite love WE CONTINUE a seven month process called Rainbowed Reclamation, a colorful women of color juicy poetry and food-filled space of sacred discussions that reclaim our bodies, collectivize our spiritual energy and the brilliant choreopoem For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf.

Please wear orange and bring food if you can!

Children are welcome will be provided…please let us know in advance if you can if you are bringing a young revolutionary who may not be quite young or old enough to wander through our conversation about sex and coming(!) of age.

These monthly discussion/rituals are love in practice towards creating a spiritually …aligned, intimately interconnected, queer affirming and self loving community of women of color and genderqueer people of color ready to support each other in transforming the world.

Childcare will be provided!

If you are a woman of color and/or a genderqueer person of color anywhere near Durham…COME! If you are a woman of color and/or a genderqueer person of color anywhere in the world email brokenbeautifulpress@gmail.com to find out how to host your own event and send folks in North Carolina to us!!! If you are an ally spread the word and please send this to people who need this space!!!!
