Tickets for the Valencia Premiere at Frameline in SF!
Author Michelle Tea discusses Mermaid in Chelsea Creek , her new queer YA novel
Hannah Arendt’s philosophical ideas on reflexive judgment stipulate the importance of visiting and imagining positions beyond the self in order to consider the moral dimension of actions and decisions, so as to exist with an enlarged mentality. The quickest way to go visiting is to slip into someone else’s skin or share in a communal covering. I’ve been using fabric and masking in my practice as both an empathetic device and a resistance strategy for some time. By crafting metaphoric skins that individuals can wear, or a community can share in, we bring awareness to the politics of embodiment (being) and spectacle (seeing). - Jemima Wyman

I am going to be in San Francisco in June! The Valencia movie will be premiering at the Frameline Film Festival. If you will be in town you should come see it. There will be a bunch of events related to the Valencia screening. Here’s one, a panel about Queer culture in the 1990s: https://www.facebook.com/events/512983735428243/
I have a very limited number of these tote bags available. Totally adorable for Spring/Summer, double sided with dark kisses on one side and hot pink kisses with black text on the reverse. These were designed and hand made by Sarah Faith Gottesdiener in LA. If you want one they are listed on Etsy!
