gender.RIP: Fully Automated Luxury Gender Oasis
Time and Venue TBA
Do you sometimes find festivals overwhelming? Do you ever yearn to draw or crochet, even though you’ve always been convinced you couldn’t? Want to read books and play games or chat about gender? No matter what has left you parched, the Spirit of Fringe award winning Fully Automated Luxury Gender Oasis is here to replenish you.
Join us for CHILL TIME at our pop-up Oasis during Quarter Block Party, with special guest: Morgan M. Page. The space will be open and free for you to kick back, relax, and replenish your energy reserves. Activities available will include drawing, playing video games by trans game creators, crochet, knitting, browsing the collection of trans publications available for reading, and viewing the artworks on display. (Or you can come and do nothing at all, whatever you need from the Oasis!) This space is for you – consider it your festival home.
Fully Automated Luxury Gender Oasis is presented by gender.RIP in association with Trans Live Art Salon ( transliveartsalon.com ).
