The Hormel Center is graciously hosting us for an exhibit of our protest artwork from the last few years. Do you want to see the “Queers Never Die” skeleton puppet that we walked across town for the Trans & Dyke marches in June? How about the original “Trans Dykes are Good and Pure” shields from when MY came to UCB? We’ll even have the club jacket that we dyed with menstrual blood from 2015… assuming we can get it through security. Monster Pride! Color Guard bats! A trans labrys!
Come out, say hi, reconnect. If we haven’t seen you in a minute, we miss you <3<3. If you’re new to our work, hopefully we can inspire you. This will be another long year, let’s get together and hold each other up.
The show will run through July (barring intervention).
“The Degenderettes are a humble and practical club, fighting for gender rights within human reach rather than with legislation and slogans. Their agit-prop artwork has come to permeate internet trans culture, national television, and headlines as far as Germany. This exhibit features objects and photographs documenting public performances—including parades, marches and die-ins—by the Northern California chapter of the Degenderettes. Gather, share knowledge and celebrate our unique identities at the queerest library ever. Visit the James C. Hormel LGBTQIA Center, the gateway to the Library’s broader collections documenting lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex and allies’ history and culture, with a special emphasis on the San Francisco Bay Area.”
