A Certain Type of Brilliance is a performance series celebrating femmes’ ability to pull amazing things out of thin air, to create on a dime, to use our vulnerability and creativity as our greatest assets in resistance to oppression.  The next round of shows will be on stage at Gay City from Feb.7-17th. UW Students will be highlighted in the February 8th & 14th shows.  AND, the producers are still seeking 4 performers for those two shows, if you are interested in performing, please fill out the form at this link by Friday 1/18/19:   https://tinyurl.com/y7qrdrm7

Liz Cruz (show creator) and Ila Dola-Borg (performer) are bringing to the femmes of UW a critically theorized intersectional identity and art workshop, with the intention of connecting QTPOC & white femme students with this work. They will facilitate a 3.5-hour workshop for femme-identified (and femme-curious) students on Tuesday, January 29th from 6:15-9:45 p.m. (following Gender Discussion Group).  Students who attend this workshop will have the opportunity to explore their personal femme identities, experiences, and stories in community with one another through a variety of discussions and activities.  They will leave with a piece of art they’ve created based on their explorations during the session.

A Note on Femme Identity:  ‘Femme’ means a lot of different things to different people; this is part of the beauty of femme identity.  For many of us, femme is a queering of femininity, a politicized expression of gender, a space to transgress expectations.  For the purpose of this project, ‘femme’ includes anyone who identifies with the word, inclusive of all genders, bodies and expressions.
