Milo from the Queer Zine Archive Project (QZAP) wrote in to share some info about an upcoming event in Milwaukee:
On the weekend of October 22nd through October 24th, A Broader Vocabulary Collective and QZAP present Girls to the Front Fest.
Girls to the Front Fest is a three-day event dedicated to the legacy and persevering spirit of the Riot Grrrl movement. This movement was an important moment in forming identities of fierce feminists, queer warriors and community minded leaders. Throughout the weekend, we will hold several events which include music, activism, poetry, discussions, art, workshops, and films. Opening night kick-off will feature a reading and discussion by Sarah Marcus, author of Girls to the Front: the True Story of the Riot GRRRL Revolution. Central to the event will be several concerts featuring female and queer bands from Milwaukee and surrounding cities. Girls to the Front will also host events featuring groups such as the Pedal Pushers Society, The Miltown Kings, and the Brew City Bruisers.
Looks like they’re also going to have a showing of the Le Tigre documentary and riot grrrl karaoke. What a dream!
