First off, thanks to Rachel for notifying me this:
June 16 CROSS THIS!: dykemarch/rally benefit.
across genres... Dyke March: when a parade becomes an art fest Chicago Dyke March / Rally 2004 presents---
"CROSS THIS: how LGBTQ people create/cross boundaries", an evening about jumping cultural and gender boundaries. The featured performer is Dr. Laila Farah, a Lebanese-American feminist performer-scholar, who navigates ideas of nation, gender, and sexuality with innovative performance. The political thrust of her performance comes from a critical and dynamic questioning of US imperialism, Americana, and apathy.
Also on this evening is a screening of "Little Boy Panties." The film explores gender labels in our current society, and poses the question, "Is your gender as easy to change as your underwear?" Hmm...! Be one of the first to see this innovative documentary that promises not to leave any tan-lines.
This event benefits the Chicago Dykemarch/Rally 2004. It convenes Wednesday, 16 June, at Chase Café, 7301 N Sheridan Road (Rogers Park) Chicago. The event begins at 6:30 PM. Donations are on a sliding scale, from $5 to $10.
Think I can manage the lower end of that sliding scale. And yes, this is crossposted to Chicago Lesbians Invading Taverns, because like all my threats, the one about how I wasn't going to be running the thing was completely ineffectual.
