The F Word presents Emma Kivisild’s Dyke Memorabilia project from BOLDfest 2012. Emma is an artist, writer, and performer active in the disability arts community. This is a collection of memories centered around precious objects the participants have kept over the years. Ariana Barer captured their stories of feminist organizing and lesbian community herstory through the '80s and '90s. Music clips are from Animal Slaves, Moral Lepers, The Slits, Patti Smith, Cris Williamson, and Marianne Faithfull.
Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
