sooooo joe biel is gonna be at the sf zinefest. what should we do about it? message me if you have any ideas. they did an interview with him and are treating him like a guest of honor. can’t just go to the zinefest without doing something about it. help!
Here’s the contact form for anyone who wants to say something to the organizers about this. I think in general it is really important, when you feel comfortable doing so, to give folks who organize events feedback about what does and doesn’t make you feel safe(r).
I’ pretty sure SFZF doesn’t have a Safer Space policy and I decided never to go back after 2009 when I requested not to sit anywhere near Microcosm and they put me in a spot where I was pretty much looking across the room directly at their table and had to walk RIGHT BY THEIR TABLE if I wanted to go to the bathroom. Great planning, thanks. Also, I was very very disappointed at how the organizers handled a separate situation regarding someone’s behavior. Plus, it seems more like a craft fair as there seemed to be way more plush things, prints, and jewelery than actual zines and the zine fest.
thnx for all the luv, ya’ll, i surely would’ve pulled my fingernails all the way off if it weren’t for u
i got this email from a different prof:
i dropped that section and switched to a different part time lecturer who’s been teaching for a long time and whose research interests include postmodernism and social work (lol) and also trans issues, so hopefully that will be better??
