If you are anywhere near NYC this weekend, you NEED to make a trip! The Femme Family has been working really hard to prepare our first ever FEMME PRIDE WEEK! As the denmother of the queerscouts I've put together a little itinerary to make your week super fabulous and well-organized (I am a Capricorn).
“Don’t let improvements in public health cloud your romantic judgment.”–Kelli Dunham, Episode 6 of FemmeCast
Episode 6: The Lesbian Footwarming Syndrome.*
In this episode host Bevin Branlandingham discusses the ways in which queer fat femmes are critically engaged in their relationship status. Running time: 67 minutes.
Fatshion correspondent, Tara, teaches us how to convert dresses for winter wear. Like this!
Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha talks about scarcity and dating.
“Sharks do not take anything except prime pieces of sirloin. We do not apologize for our hunger.”
Naima reviews The Secret. “What kind of credentials do you need to become a ‘visionary’, anyway?”
We have a round table on the cultural capital of couplehood.
We welcome writer and activst Gina De Vries and world class Belly Dancer Miasia to FemmeCast. Technical Editor Anna break the veil of silence to discuss singlehood.
And, we react to the election results. (See Bevin on Gawker from the NYC Prop 8 Protest!)
*The concept of The Lesbian Footwarming Syndrome, as introduced by Kelli Dunham, is “You’re a lesbian, I’m a lesbian, let’s keep each others’ feet warm.” With no further considerations for happiness, sustainability or compatibility.
