Femme Day of Action: I’m not sure yet what this will entail, but I hear there’s an organizing meeting later this month, and I’m excited to see what will unfold!
Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater: Performing Revelations, Anointed, The Hunt, In/Side, and Cry, this insanely famous and by all accounts talented African American company is one I’ve been dying to see since I was thirteen.
Vacation to Marseille: My first major trip all by myself and all paid for by myself, out of earnings from my first adult job. Tons of chilling, tons of reading, tons of writing, a little bit of blogging, a little bit of queer culture exploration, and hopefully as much femme mermaid beaching as possible.
The Femme Conference: In Baltimore, MD from 17-19 August, The Fourth Biannual Femme Conference (misnamed; it should be “biennial”) aims to create a femme-centered space with workshops, keynotes, performances, resources, and more.
Outside the Boxes: Celebrating the Queer Body Erotic: I started hearing about these workshops offered by the Body Electric School through Mr. Sexsmith over at Sugarbutch a couple years ago, and this year I want in. I want my next formal development of my yoga practice to be more personal, holistic, and tied to my actual gender, sexuality, and body than my Ashtanga teacher training was. I’m still debating between this one and the intro one for women, but I think something specifically queer will likely fit better, wherever I end up on the ladybro spectrum while I’m there.
