Sex, Gender, Politics, and everything in between
La Fête du Slip
Gender & Sexualities Festival
7-9 March 2014
La Fête du Slip is a multidisciplinary festival positively celebrating all the diversity of bodies, genders, and sexualities. Over a weekend in March, La Fête du Slip presents films, concerts, parties, exhibitions, conferences, workshops, readings, and even culinary events! This year we explore themes such as BDSM, sex work or trans* identities.
This festival is for all intents and purposes the incarnation of this blog (http://anarchofeminist.tumblr.com) in an event. The author of this blog is the co-director of the festival. As we do not want to sell the event to corporate sponsors, nor do we want to have prices that prevent people from attending, are last hope for financing is in our audience and our fans all over the world. That’s why we launched a crowdfunding campaign:
This weekend, there is a national vote in Switzerland that calls into question the foundations of reproductive rights that have been established for decades. Another vote on the same day wants to limit immigration and make the already inhumane policies even worse. With such a revival of conservative ideas pushing back against the recent progress in women’s rights, LGBT rights, and anti-racism, it’s crucially important to support sex-positive culture in Switzerland. We are the only festival to present such a diverse and rich intersectionnally feminist program in this part of the country.
Thank you for your support. And feel free to come to Switzerland and participate! It’s gonna be awesome!
this is an interesting point, although mathematically inaccurate: assuming the women:men, 0.78:1 ratio is correct, men make $1.28 for every woman’s $1
White people are still the ~standard so that’s not so revolutionary.
A white man makes $1.34 for every dollar that a black man makes
A white man makes $1.52 for every dollar that a latino man makes
A white man makes $1.24 for every dollar that a white woman makes
A white man makes $1.44 for every dollar that a black woman makes
A white man makes $1.67 for every dollar that a latina woman makes
That’s some bullshit right there.
