Many of you have heard that last month was the final year of the Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival, or MichFest. The festival was well known for it’s anti-trans discrimination and became a hotbed of anti-trans activist organizing. Most in the trans community are celebrating that this long standing discriminatory institution is coming to an end, however, at one time I had been hopefully optimistic that this could change, and I even attended the festival myself.
This video is a performance I gave at the traveling show, Bawdy Storytelling, when they made a stop in Seattle. The theme of the night was “Strange Bedfellows” and I shared my story of hooking up at MichFest.
