Fuck With Your Femme: Reifying Black Expansiveness Through Signifying and Pleasure

Thursday, April 23, 2020
3-4:30pm CDT

with Jos Bloomfield (Philadelphia, PA), juh weems (Washington, DC)

We will discuss whiteness and its soldiers, “professionalism” and “respectability”, and the limits of marching to these drums. We will offer opportunities to explicitly express pleasure in a safe environment. We will lead practices of consent and appropriate ways to share pleasure and desire. We will reflect on ways that professionalism, whiteness, and toxic masculinity constrain healthy expressions of femininity. We will reflect on femmephobia and name ways to disarm it.

And we will display art created during the workshop along side art that has been displayed at Black Femme Brunch events, copy written to signify the opening of this safe space and photographs and video that archive these moments of femme freedom.

Please note: captions can currently only be viewed by watching the archival video on Vimeo.com. We are working with our web developer to make this possible on our website, and thank you for your patience as we move through this process.
