Sunday, August 12th at 6 pm at the Red Clover Collective (603 E. 30th Street)
Baltimore Racial Justice Action (BRJA) will present an overview of their work on dismantling racism. https://sites.google.com/site/baltoracialjustice/home
Elvis Bakaitis will present Queers in history! We know they were *there,* so where were they? Come and find out about the magic of 19th century “romantic friendships,” and the awesome queer blues singers of the 1920’s & ’30s. We’ll also take a look at the state of queer historical archives today, and how some institutions hide or conceal information, making for a strange ambiguity about queerness. How do we want to portray and remember queer history, and how are those narratives taking shape?Elvis Bakaitis is a Brooklyn-based zinester and future librarian. In 2012, they co-organized the NYC Feminist Zinefest, and has given talks on queer history at Rutgers University, the Hedrick-Martin Institute (home of Harvey Milk High School), Kearny High School in New Jersey, and Red Emma’s Bookstore Coffeehouse in Baltimore. They also facilitate the monthly feminist bookclub at Bluestockings Bookstore.
Suzy X. will present IT’S NOT ALL ABOUT YOU: blogger Suzy X. examines the rugged individualism so prevalent in mainstream feminist politics today. From Slutwalk and sex positivity, to the defense of reproductive rights, and to the liberal aspirations of Having It All™, she believes one of the setbacks of feminism today is the narrow interpretation of “the personal is political,” that prioritizes a focus on the individual over intersectional and collective organizing.http://suzy-x.tumblr.com/
As always we’ll be meeting at the Red Clover Collective to break ice & eat FREE FOOD w/ gluten free and vegan options, child care, (please rsvp if you can so we can anticipate the # of kids!) and music.

Ewww I was a sweaty mess. But I guess that’s part of the job when you’re trying to channel Henry Rollins.
Sometimes things like this happen and it’s like I havent wasted my life, it kind of all makes sense that my friend’s punk band is covering Black Flag and Adam is DJing and all the girls in the audience know the words.
I couldn’t take off from my regular job this week to film for two whole days. So they’re gonna have me featured in another episode, which will be filmed some time in the next month or two.
However, when that time comes, whatever scene I’m in, you better believe that I will troll the fuck out of those breeders and look like the fabulous muff diving witch I am. You can’t stop us Brooklyn queers. We’ll troll your fancy dinner parties, your girls-night-outs and the sets of your television shows.
My pinkies are crooked. It’s a thing that runs in my family. I try to use this as an excuse as to why I can’t use my pinky when I’m playing guitar. It bends inward, so I just can’t move it to the next fret, sorry. I guess my career as a guitar virtuoso has run its course.
mine are too! and it runs in my family! Perhaps there is some sexay bonus we haven’t figured out yet.
