In the very first episode of season two of Broadside, we review Sandbox Theatre’s feminist post-apocalyptic play 600 Years, discuss Mary Dore’s 2014 women’s lib documentary film She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry, and give you the low-down on some rad liberationist feminist manifestos from the 1970s.
This summer the Anti-Violence Program at OutFront Minnesota held a community forum to discuss relationship abuse, sexual violence, and community accountability in LGBTQ communities. As a result of this listening session we developed a survey to gather more information about individuals’ experiences and perspectives on LGBTQ abuse and violence.
We hope to hear from a diverse spectrum of the LGBTQ people across Minnesota in order to develop and implement new community-based strategies for violence education and prevention. In our experience systems-based responses don’t work for all survivors and often times actually harm survivors more than help. Survivors are continuously re-victimized by mainstream services providers, organizations, and institutions.
We are invested in creating alternatives for survivors and we can’t do it without your help. Together we can start to think outside of the box and look at new approaches to health, wellness, healing, and accountability within LGBTQ communities. The survey will run from Sept. 6th to Oct. 31st, is confidential and anonymous, and takes approximately 25 minutes to complete.
