Do you identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Queer, Trans*, Intersex, Two-Spirit, Gender-Neutral?
Are you a POC artist, activist, facilitator or writer?
If you answered yes to two or more of the above, we are looking for your brilliance!!!
CUNT&CANDY is a fluidly inclusive space for all things queer, creative, and necessary || where radical QPOC identity and (sub)cultured creative interdependability meet.
Imagine if you will, a group of QPOC revolutionaries, artists, activists, bloggers, expressionists, and influencers coming together to create a collective that seeks to facilitate the evolution of brown body empowerment. By utilizing our respective skills, influence, and ambition we will redefine through workshops geared towards queer communities, a monthly zine that will focus on issues plaguing or reflective of our demographic, a digital platform that will facilitate personal expressions of healing rebellion, nurture the authenticity of queer creative artistry, educate and amplify events/news of relevancy, and curate artist collectives from QPOCs of all mediums and backgrounds.
That is what Cunt & Candy is.
The idea was spawned by a discussion that took place one Saturday evening in a Brooklyn brownstone between a group of brown queer creatives, that touched on stigmas, reproductive injustices, femme invisibility, social reform, the need for safe spaces, and of course, queer sustainability. What began as a simple round table word exchange, has grown into a movement and I hope that you will join me in my quest to redefine the parameters of creative queer badassery and transcendent entrepreneurship.
I am currently building a team and if you are interested in participating in this movement with me, reach out now or forever have your lipstick smudged and bowtie askew. I have the vision, I have the know-how, and I am definitely saturated in enough passion, but mama needs a little help.
Will you join me huntys!
Positions currently available:
My right hand boo, my mind is a cornucopia of brilliance and madness, so I need an equally mad genius to help me bring these visions to reality. This will soooo not be an easy task, but if you are down to rage by my side, shall we dance?
