Starting summer 2014, Chicago will be hosting a queercore festival, celebrating queer and trans* voices in punk communities! SAVE THE DATE JULY 26-27! More details coming soon!!! Spread this shit like wildfire!
We are selling our buttons and posters on Big cartel now!! everything you buy will go straight helping us raise money to fed up fest!
Where is the money to fed up fest going to? Besides paying for bands, and venue spaces and other such things to actually have the fest be up and running, Fed up fest is a fundraiser for PROJECT FIERCE! a new local organization that’s mission is to reduce LGBTQ youth homelessness in Chicago by providing affirming transitional housing and support services to homeless LGBTQ young adults. We want this festival to be not only a space that can foster positive change in the punk world but beyond as well! All of us on the collective actively strive to work on building better communities inside and out of DIY and we hope that by raising money we can help build lasting bonds within Chicago’s multiple thriving LGBTQIA spheres (and build lasting bonds with folks around the country as well!).
So come buy our buttons! There’s nothing cooler than having a big button that says gay on it (just in case anyone forgets ya kno?)
