Salutations grrrls and bois,
 
This week we saw the official launch of The Ruined Surprise Party! How exciting.

This post is the first of a weekly series. I (Emery) will be recommending pieces of art/writing/etc (by both established and amateur creators) I have discovered on the Internet. If you've seen anything particularly fabulous, don't hesitate to submit it to me by sending a PM to my personal DW -

BLACKBROWN FEMINISM'S HIPHOP by ~Consetta

Writing


Glitter Tongue

An enormous collection of queer love poems from Valentine's Day 2012. I'm still making my way through them. There's a wide range of voices, stories and relationships here. The writing is seriously fucking astonishing, oh man. It's like a box of chocolates with only the good ones in it.

Poems Written in 15 Minutes and Late at Night #1 by Calamity Mitchell.

Short, witty, adorable & surprising. Made me grin and make a funny squealy noise.

Forfeit by Sean Anderson

An eloquent and angry ode to the experiences of young gay men. I love the stream-of-consciousness run-on sentences. Andersen has a confident and powerful voice. Trigger Warning: Violent imagery. Sexual imagery. Discussion of homophobia. Usage of a homophobic slur.

Performance Poetry

See Through by Andrea Gibson

A consistently good performer. I have mixed feelings about Andrea sometimes and the hero-worship she receives in queer communities - after all, she's a skinny white "androgynous" lesbian who often writes about Christianity. Regardless, I can't deny I love this poem. There are names and faces behind our apathy.

Misc.


The art of Mary Ntombikayise Sibande

Sibande has created life-size sculptures and photographic prints of her creation, "Sophie". Really impressive & striking.


Liquorice by Azeala Banks


If you don't think music videos are art, I'm concerned you're not living in the 21st century. Azealia Banks' new video for Licorice is fucking amazing/badass/sexy/powerful/hilarious/a triumphant reclamation of the white male gaze. It's the new thing. Everyone watch this.

That's all for this week, honeybuns. Tell me about your feelings in the comments! Which of these wonderful things are your faves?

 

Yours in Love and Rage,

Emery
xoxo
