Sappho’s Salon

 

Sappho’s Salon: A Provocative Night of Lesbian Diversions

Featuring Anne Elizabeth Moore and Yasmin Nair

$7-$10 sliding scale includes food and wine

Tonight’s installment of our popular salon night for lesbians and their friends features two of Chicago’s most important queer writers, activists, and social critics. Co-editor and publisher of the now-defunct Punk Planet, Anne Elizabeth Moore is the author of Unmarketable: Brandalism, Copyfighting, Mocketing, and the Erosion of Integrity. She has written for Bitch, The Progressive, The Onion, Feministing, and In These Times, among others. A teacher at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Moore also works with young women in Cambodia on independent media projects. Her most recent book, Cambodian Grrrl, is the first in a series on independent culture, globalization, and women’s rights. Yasmin Nair’s writing and organizing addresses issues like neoliberalism and inequality, queer politics and theory, sex trafficking, the art world, and the immigration crisis. She is co-founder of the collective Against Equality and an active member of the grassroots organization Gender JUST. Her writing has appeared in The Progressive, Make/Shift, Bitch, The Bilerico Project, and Maximum Rock ‘n’ Roll. Proceeds benefit the artists and the Women’s Voices Fund.
