YO!SISSY

Last summer, YO!Sissy Queer Music Festival of Berlin hosted luscious personas such as Cakes da Killa, Crystal Waters, Peaches and more. Nowadays, organizers are running a Kickstarter campaign to bring bootyliciousness on stage again in 2016. Wouldn’t it be nice to sweat with Le1f or Dai Burger at SO36? Six more days to support…

IF IN LONDON…

COLOMBIAN POSTSCRIPT

If you are following our Instagram feed, you will have seen that we spent a week in Bogotá for a workshop at the impressive Utadeo university.

THE PYGMALION EFFECT

As the holiday season is coming to an end, we are still looking for reasons to stay or even to go back to some of our favorite spots this summer.

BLOCKBUSTER FAIL

The German blockbuster-directer Roland Emmerich has just released a trailer for his new movie Stonewall, and it’s been already discussed controversially, particularly about its lack of authenticity.

MARSHA

Marsha P. Johnson was a liberation activist. Despite Hollywood’s latest claims as in the film Stonewall(2015), the African American drag queen was the one who threw the first brick against the police in June, 1969. Literally, according to various sources, this trans woman of color ‘really started it’ − not a pretty clean white boy [...]

POLICING OF OUR BODIES

Terre Thaemlitz has commented on the changes to Japan’s controversial Fuueihou law via a statement on her website. The post responds to the “Declaration On the Future Of Japan’s Club Culture”, signed by 40 Japanese DJs on the same day that the 67-year-old law was officially changed by the Japanese government. She argues that it has “no purpose other than [...]

MAKE CITY

Whilst cycling in the city of Berlin, sometimes it is so shocking to observe how badly designed the city is. New condominiums or the so called ‘contemporary buildings’ of administrations are conquering our urban environment –the terrifying constructions spread around the city show that more is on the way.
Make City is a new festival on [...]

As a result of 7.8 magnitude, thousands are dead or waiting to be rescued… [...]
