She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Noirish Lesbiana

When: September 13th at 7:30 pm
Where: Washington Hall, 153 14th Avenue
Cost: Free

Noirish Lesbiana is an interdisciplinary installation by writer and performer Storme Webber, bringing together literary, visual, and performing arts in an atmospheric exploration of lost stories from Seattle’s pre-Stonewall gay culture in Pioneer Square and Chinatown of the 1960s.

Utilizing video, live performancec, visual arts and sound design this work embraces Noir aesthetics to tell moody, submerged and  hidden tales of Seattle’s multicultural queer past: marginalized, invisible lives made visible. This work restores absent narratives of Seattle’s culture through the voices of urban Natives, working class, Black & multicultural lesbians and gays, and the day-to-day realities of life when gay life itself was criminalized. The audience will find themselves in the heart of a mysterious and untold story. The project was supported by a 2014 Arts Project award.

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.
