And here's some listening for you to enjoy... The Incomplete, True, Authentic and Wonderful History of May Day – by Peter Linebaugh https://resonanceaudiodistro.org/2017/04/24/history-of-may-day-audiozine/ (This essay tells a story of the two sides of May Day: the red and the green. From Maypoles to the Haymarket martyrs.) AND The Witch's Child https://resonanceaudiodistro.org/2018/04/14/the-witchs-child-audiozine-2/ ("This is how they destroyed our roots. And this is why, on May Day, we tell stories. Stories of our lives, of our struggles, of the future we want, of a past we invent because we no longer remember it.")
-Friday, May 3rd, 6pm: First Friday Art Opening, Underdog // Ry Essi AND Animal Masks at the Fábrica
Ry Essi opens up the SubRosa space on First Friday. Arrive to catch vivid glimpses through Essi's photography of the complex and lush experience that is queer love on the west coast.
And check out the art show at The Fábrica (through the connecting door from SubRosa to the Fábrica) May Day Animal Masks "May Day is both a traditional springtime festival and an international day of honoring workers. Come celebrate the deep connection between the beauty and bounty of the season and the many kinds of work we do to survive and thrive! These anonymous found folk-art animal masks embody the magic and transformative potential of the season." from https://firstfridaysantacruz.com/event/the-fabrica-the-hub-may-day-animal-masks/?fbclid=IwAR0Mv7qs6AbyDnnct4bqfDd3o2LOsDu0WOSKC4rTELPvAiCW1rYemFnejN4
Come to this soft opening and wonder at the blessings/beauty of the queer experience documented right here in our community. https://www.facebook.com/events/381367519377483/
