A reminder (and roundup) of upcoming events featuring the fabulous Tiger Beatdown crew!
On 11 March (two days away!), you can catch Sady in Austin at SXSW in ‘Curing a Rage Headache: Internet Drama & Activism.’ Other panelists include Jay Smooth and Irin Carmon. The one hour panel starts at 12:30 PM.
On 22 March, s.e. will be speaking in Los Angeles at USC in WPH207, with a talk on the social desexualisation of people with disabilities, followed by a question and answer period. The event will run from 8-10 PM and is sponsored by the Queer and Ally Student Assembly.
On 24 March, Flavia will be leading a workshop (and probably ranting a bit as it is bound to happen) about Inclusion in Radical politics at The Community Building Working Group, a working group at Occupy Groningen in The Netherlands. The workshop will seek to challenge the current models of “inclusivity” in politics and action groups as top down initiatives where the “Other” is invited to participate in order to serve as an alibi for the members of the dominant culture. The workshop will start at 2 PM. Event details at the Community Building Working Group’s site.
On 29 March, Emily will be appearing in San Francisco as part of this year’s Girl Talk: A Cis and Trans Woman Dialogue. This year’s line-up includes Julia Serano, Elena Rose (who blogs as Little Light), Gina de Vries, Jos Truitt (from Feministing), Thea Hillman and many more. The event is located at the San Francisco LGBT Community Centre (1800 Market Street) in the Rainbow Room, runs between 7-10 PM, and costs $12-20, although no one will be turned away due to lack of funds.
(Bonus points to the reader who manages to catch all four. Think of us like Pokémon!)
