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).
“Asking for help takes its own strength and bravery.”–Genne, Epsiode 7 of FemmeCast
Asking for help is a skill–how do we learn it?
Episode 7: Asking for Help. Running time: 69 minutes.
In this episode host Bevin Branlandingham and FemmeCast contributors discuss their strategies for learning to push past the Steel Magnolias facade and receive help.
We debut our newest contributor, our Femme Shark Correspondent Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha!
“You can be a mess and still be a powerful Femme. We’re not going to cut down one another when we’re vulnerable.”
Self-Help Correspondent Genne discusses being the partner of someone with a bad drug addiction and how that taught her the importance of asking for help.
We debut the Femmes of Color Roundtable series, moderated by Fatshion and Beauty Correspondent, Tara Shuai.
“My experience of how my race, my fat and my femmeness intersect is that I think that people don’t expect fat East Asians. I feel like a bodily contradiction, simultaneously desexualized and hypersexualized.”
Bevin interviews Jenny Lowery, aka Pidgeon Von Tramp, Queer Fat Femme Burlesque performer with the Von Foxies of Seattle, writer and founding board member of the Bent Writing Institute.
