Excited to announce that EBF will be sponsoring FEMFEST on Saturday, May 26th!
If you are interested in joining us with La Familia (Stanford's LGBTQ+ Latinx organization) to sober monitor, make posters and much more, please email [email protected]
One predominant social scene that Stanford students have access to are All-Campus parties. Due to institutionalized power dynamics, these parties can often perpetuate an unhealthy party culture that lacks communication and consent in drinking and hookups. Many of these spaces are intentionally and unintentionally controlled by cis-men, which is illustrated through venue, music, and sober monitor demographic choices. This introduces a lack of access and eq...uality in social settings.
At FEMFEST (an Intersectional Feminist Fest), we aim to create a radical and fun space for hanging out, enjoying music, and meeting new people. The goal of FEMFEST is to center feminist identities and voices, including cis-women, trans women, trans femmes, and anyone along the feminine spectrum at a party that is safer for us all. All grades, genders, and identities are welcome here. FEMFEST will center female-identifying DJs and an interactive educational exploration of consent, communication and feminism in Stanford’s social scene. FEMFEST will be held on Saturday, May 26th, from 10 PM — 1 AM at EBF.
Volunteers, representing as many different genders, races, socio-economic classes, sexualities and abilities as possible (this event strives be an INTERSECTIONAL feminist party) will have glow stick necklaces, making them a visible presence at this party and easy to find in case a guest has an issue to report.
Paloma Moreno-Jimenéz, Natassia Walley, DJ Suga Trap and Bella Miranda will be your DJs for the night!
A feminist poster wall and photobooth, an “inspiring women” card matching game, and a communal poster thread are some installations you can participate in throughout the night. EANABs provided.
COME TO DANCE, STAY FOR THE COMMUNITY, LEAVE EMPOWERED AND CENTERED!
