From their gofundme page: Richmond TG Prom RICHMOND, VA
The TG Prom is an annual event for anyone who identifies in any way as trans* and for anyone who supports trans* identities. It seeks to continue providing a safe, non-judgemental, and fun space for trans* people and their allies to meet and make friends. It seeks to promote a culture that acknowledges and accepts without hierarchy or judgement all forms of trans* identity. It acknowledges and supports the right of trans* people to determine their own needs and seeks to provide financial assistance as much as possible in meeting those needs without condition. It seeks to provide a space that showcases trans* talent and performers who have far too often been overshadowed or represented by drag performances within the LGBT community. It seeks to promote a visible trans* community so that trans* identities may stop being a source of stigma and shame, so that dangerous stereotypes are shown to be untrue, and to attract more allies and supporters to trans* causes.

we are trying to raise money to secure and throw the TG Prom at the GCCR.

The People’s Library – ALL DAY
WHO: The People’s Library (2013) is a highly collaborative and sustainable public art project featuring a library designed, built, and authored by community members.

These sheets are bound to make blank books, which anyone may check out, author, and return to be included in the Main Branch of the Richmond Public Library’s permanent collection. The resulting installation contests hierarchical notions of history and offers sustainable, collective, and critical alternatives for the form and function of public art.
WHAT: Throughout the day participants can help make paper, silk screen the title pages, and bind the books that will be included in the library’s permanent collection.
Invited: Any and all
WHERE: The Makers Space
Zine-making – ALL DAY

Please feel free to print and share these Richmond Zine Fest Fliers!

We are super excited to already have a confirmed date and venue, and to have our table and workshop registration open.

And don’t forget- the Wingnut is hosting a Zine Making Day on Saturday March 30th from 1-5 at 2005 Barton Avenue – come work on your project and share snacks/coffee/tea

The 2011 Richmond Zine Fest will be on October 8th at the Gay Community Center of Richmond! We just confirmed the date and location.

Sign up for tabling and for workshops will all be starting in the next couple of weeks.

The Wingnut tables at the Zine Fest, and will have a couple new publications for this October event.If you are a friend of the Wingnut (or want to become one) feel free to get in touch about the Zine Fest. We should also be able to host some out of town folks to spend the night, as long as you are down with our  Guest Policy (http://wingnutrva.org/wingnut-guest-policy/).

It is a really great time, with lots of neat people locally and from around the country.There is still plenty of time to create your own zine to sell or trade or give away at the Richmond Zine Fest.

The Richmond Zine Fest could definitely use your support and participation this year, as the cost of renting the space has increased. We are doing our best to keep the table costs the same, but that means we have to make up the difference through fundraisers. The next fundraiser will be this Thursday, May 12th at Sprout (1 North Morris Street) at 10pm and will be a Zine Reading with 10 different zinesters sharing from their works!
