Sunday, July 24, 2011
@ the GLBT History Museum – 4127 18th Street

$5 donations are requested but no one turned away for lack of funds!

This event will commemorate the life and work of fat activist Judy Freespirit (who has an archive at the Historical Society) and will feature performance from the legendary FAT LIP Readers’ Theater, Jezebel Delilah X and others! Performances will be followed by a discussion/Q&A and is meant to create dialogue between generations of fat queer activists.

Thanks and big fat tummy rubs!

Judy Freespirit was an architect of the fat liberation movement. She was a founding member of the Fat Underground and of FAT LIP Readers Theatre. She was a performer, an activist, a lesbian, a feminist, and all around fearless shit kicker.

Cathy Cade, a member of the GLBT Historical Society Women’s Committee, has completed an archive for Judy Freespirit which can be viewed at the GLBT Historical Society. Pieces from the collection will be on display at the July 24 event.
