  1. riley

    what bands are playing each night?

  2. queer

    i know y’all are putting a lot of work into this but pretty much everything except maybe the ice thing sounds sooo crafty diy and irrelevant…

    • sam

      look at the mission statement – the point is to create community. i don’t see how any of these workshops are irrelevant to the mission statement.

    • mia maxwell

      workshops on self-defense and patriarchy and police are irrelevant? also there’s going to be more workshops then listed here.

    • mia maxwell

      um also it’s a “diy” fest…

    • why don’t you facilitate a workshop/discussion that you find more relevant?

    • anuthaqueer

      i’d like to note that some of the “crafty” workshops listed are pretty relevant to living a life not dependent upon the pre-designed corporate world, for example: building rocket stoves, DIY book binding.

      radical self-reliance is an important skill to have and share with others.

      I’m really stoked for all the workshops, to share creativity, fun, important information, and fuckin’ MAD RAD SKILLS!

      This is going to be an amazing festival- errybody get PUMPED!

  3. riley

    i cant seem to find the address for the procession center on the website…perhaps i have overlooked it?

    i’m so excited to dance around and learn new skills!

  4. Kate

    Yo, we’ve got less than a week to go… any closer to posting the full schedule?

  5. Hi,
    Are yall going to have art featured at any of the venues? I would like to include some of my art that deconstructs gender, or at least depicts genderqueer folks. What do you think? It is pretty last minute, but just wanted to try and show. I’ll send jpgs to another address if you are interested and you can find some of my art on my facebook page.

    With only a few days to go, i have yet to see ANY accessibility information anywhere here or on the facebook group. If GJ folks are working to be inclusive of the full fabulousness of our communities (and the mission statement suggests you do!), then please make sure this information is clearly, easily consistently available ahead of the event.

    shout out to every single person involved in the making of this event

  10. august

    the file for the program seems to be broken? I can’t get it to open.

    • Gender.Jam

      Once you click on it your computer should prompt you to open or save the file. It could be that your computer does not have an application that is compatible with it.

  11. Sweet Pea

    There is going to be a chance to sing with Olympias Free choir on Sunday 4-6 @ fertile ground guest house (behind the library)… Double check the final schedule when it comes out and come sing with us!!!

  13. GayDays

    I thought for some reason there was going to be a ladiy & trans dance party friday night. Is there or did I make that up? Can’t wait for the festivities…
