I’m glad to announce that the Queer Feminist burlesque collective Lashings of Ginger Beer Time will be giving a workshop which will include performance and discussion at the Queer Feminist Social Media praxis workshop, on 17 May 2013. Book your place now, as spaces are limited!
Lashings of Ginger Beer Time is a diverse group of activists, writers, and performers who combine intersectional feminist analysis with high-energy performance. While some of our acts critique the patriarchal world around us through a queer-feminist lens, others are drawn from our members’ experiences of other oppressions: disability, race, trans status, and immigrant status are just a few of these. In our most recent project, ‘Alternative Sex Education’, we developed a full-length show addressing rape culture, consent, sexual diversity, and the failings of the sex education we grew up with. Following the success of ‘Alt.Sex.Ed’ at the Edinburgh Fringe, we are currently fundraising to bring our latest political panto ‘Fanny Whittington’ to Edinburgh in 2013.
