She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Put This On The {Map}: LGBTQ Youth In Washington

Sid Jordan Peterson presents Put This On The {Map}, a video documentary project capturing the narratives of LGBTQ young people in Washington State. From stories of getting beat-up in a schoolyard to being picked up as a runaway, we learn that LGBTQ youth exercise courage daily. Join the filmmaker in a special screening of this documentary and a post-screening discussion. In an open and welcoming atmosphere, Peterson provides an audience with a local look at critical issues and examines the changing dynamics of gender and sexuality in Washington. The audience will also learn about the filmmaking process and how video can serve as an effective tool for engaging young people in community-based research and education.

When: June 30th

Where: Kirkland Library, 3808 Kirkland Avenue

About sheswithmeseattle

She's With Me is the brain child of three feminists who got tired of emailing each other every time they caught wind of a womanist event, so they created a separate space to house their feminist calendar. The benefits would be twofold: fewer emails cluttering up their inboxes, and more people learning about Seattle's growing feminist community. She's With Me aims to be a feminist hub, where all the goings on of different organizations are collected in one place. Our plans for the site include reviews/write-ups of events, interviews with local feminist activists, news updates, and essays, poetry, and art by feminists. The Fourth Wave of Feminism is here, and She's With Me will be the feminist scrap book documenting our herstory as it unfolds.
