This evening, Thursday October 10th, 7:30pm, Border Resistance Benefit Show for Hecate Society— Join us for a night of queer folk and big feelings!


~Laurence White~
Laurence is a non binary singer songwriter born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky. Laurence lives in Santa Cruz, California where they practice poetry, awe, and healing work.

~Chaotic Futch~
They're back, baby. And it's their birthday. 

~Sophie Lev (of Superbloom)~
Sophie Lev makes music from just below the surface. They write songs that tell stories of reconciling with grief, change, and revering in the emergence of new life and self in the wake of loss. Their recent project, superbloom (with emma haas and ethan pezzolo) is about a place, a period of time, a way of thinking. It's about the incubation, the cycles from which new life can be born, the temporariness of all things and the beauty of finding oneself paralleled with a season.

~Kite Hands Glowing~
Kite Hands Glowing is the musical project of Nadia Lucia's melodies on the piano, on a guitar and through singing. Nadia practices energetic herbalism and teaches kindergarten and music is her way of weaving her dreams for the land and the water through melody and performance. She is a storyteller and advocate for rematriating indigenous life practices. Nadia feels she is grateful to share herself through music for audiences, and finds that her performance is ever-evolving. 

All proceeds will benefit Hecate Society! 

From Hecate Society:  "Hecate Society is a QTPOC* centric, femme* & youth-led, art and media collective that aims to elevate the stories of immigrants and refugees traveling to the so-called United States while simultaneously engaging in mutual aid, community organizing and coalition building inside of refugee communities. Our intention is to support refugee-run autonomous spaces in border towns and communities with high concentrations of refugees and migrants by providing support around housing, food, media, and legal aid. We emphasize working with political refugees and refugee activists who are actively engaging in direct action against the government and organizing in their communities, whether it's in detention, in Tijuana, in the US or back in their homelands. We support LGBTQ+ and vulnerable populations within the refugee community throughout their entire transition, pre, during and post detention processes in hopes that individuals can escape deathly situations and build powerful new movements within refugee communities that will fight against the US-funded pillars of injustice that are creating unlivable situations for millions of people. 

We aim to create a revolutionary paradigm for building collective power and healing trauma by using art and media. We hope to use Hecate Society as a platform that can bring decentralized support to refugees, particularly LGBTQ+ femme and youth voices to produce their own narratives and bring their own voices and stories to the forefront. We hope to acknowledge and raise awareness around how the exodus is directly intertwined with indigenous sovereignty and climate change. We believe that media and art can be used not only to reframe problematic narratives and build alternative ones, but also, as a form of therapy, to heal identity and community based trauma. The content we produce is created through a mutual exchange of ideas, using casual interviews that also serve as therapeutic and healing moments that can help us and the interviewees process traumatic experiences and beautiful experiences alike. When we build our content, we are building deeper friendships. We aim to capture the totality of people's humanity, suffering and most importantly, their resistance.

Our biggest team is on the ground in Tijuana but we also have members of the collective currently working out of Chicago, Minneapolis, Oakland and Italy.

*QTPOC: Queer, Trans, People of Color
*Femme: We use the word femme as an inclusive term that includes all trans, cis and non-binary people whom identify as femme"

And another reminder about the Santa Cruz Zine Fest 2019 and EVERYONE is welcome! Saturday, November 16th at the RCNV. Doors open at 10 am and close at 5 pm. A more detailed schedule with the information of workshops and presentatios will be released forther on. This year, we'll gather at the Resource Center for Nonviolence for an entire day of ZINES tabling and showcasing, workshops (including one for kids!), presentations, yummy food, music, and an atmosphere of respect, collective work and solidarity. This event will seek to evoke a trend of DIY, all ages, accessible event to promote a more safer and accountable community. 

This year, our goal is to highlight the ways that zines have influenced and fueled political struggles and resistance to oppression. Part of the way we wish to accomplish this is by prioritizing marginalized voices, including but not limited to BIPOC, Queer/Trans/Genderqueer/LGBTQ+, and disabled writers and artists. The focus will be on showcasing zines that explore the themes of resistance, political struggle, liberation, and oppression on the grand political scale, in local communities, and in personal lived experiences. 

This event is FREE. Donations at the door will be very much appreciated. People of all ages are encouraged to come. There will be accessibility accommodations, but please let us know if there's anything in particular that we can do to ensure you the best experience. Questions or comments, please contact us at SPREAD THE WORD, INVITE YOUR FRIENDS & FAMILY! SubRosa and other Hub folk will be tabling there too! 

SubRosa is part of a community center called the Hub ---

Post a Comment

Comments on the SubRosa website are fully moderated. As a collective, we agreed that the purpose of the website was to promote SubRosa, not to provide an online place for lively and invigorating debate. We hope that the space itself is where conversations on the nature of anarchism and local projects will take place. That said, we occasionally approve comments that are informative or reflect a viewpoint we feel it is important for website visitors to read.
