The images declassified feature forensic evidence pertaining to lesbian genocide committed by the Central Intelligence Agency or CIA of The United States.

Hi there!
I'm Laila, moving to the Philly area within a few weeks! Just got finished living in Baltimore for about 5 years, before that, Ohio for a year, then before THAT, I grew up overseas in Dubai, Istanbul and Kuwait. And yes, I'm American, my parents were just ESL teachers. (For some reason people think that just because I LIVED overseas, I'm automatically arab and therefore a terrorist. Really?) I have to relocate to this area because I unfortunately had to quit my job in Baltimore for a number of reasons and just wanted a change! I'll still be commuting a few times a week to attend my grad school classes at Hopkins. 

Anyways! Basically I'm here looking for some friends =). I'm in a period in my life where I want to work on me and just do things I love with no drama attached, so I think friends with similar interests would be a great step in that direction. I like music (I'm a freelance music journalist--more for fun, less for the almost nothing I get paid for it ;), reading and movies as well as wandering south street (so awesome!) and doing different activities every week. I love museums and different kinds of cultural events. I'll definitely try anything once.

Oh, and I'm 23 =).

Here's a picture!:

A few years old, but I basically look the same. I've just lost the eyebrow ring and gained some glasses =p.

Save the fat date!!!! Philly is busting out of our pants and onto the streets! [Thursday

Save the fat date!!!! Philly is busting out of our pants and onto the streets!

Calling all radical fatties and their allies!! Join for us for the fattest day of the summer!! July 11, 2009, you are invited to participate in 3 radical fat events. First, a flash mob, or rather a FLESH mob. The idea is that we’ll gather at the Philadelphia art museum, and scantily/flashily clad self-identified fat folks will run, walk, skip, waddle, ride, saunter, sashay, etc. their way to the top of the famous stairs, Rocky style. Fat folks who don’t do stairs can be waiting at the top for the mob. All of this while allies are cheering, holding signs, and handing out fat liberation literature. This will be quick and illegal.

All that fat visibility has made me hungry! On to a barbeque in West Philadelphia for delicious summer fare and exciting company. Don’t be shy fatties and allies, fuel up for the mega hot fat dance party that night!! Be prepared to show off your sweet moves and hottest queer fashion while raising funds for a fat queer documentary.

Tell your friends and we’ll keep in touch!!

Women's Party...The Crucible...Washington, DC...Sun.11/9 1-6pm [Monday


I hope you can join us.  We're gonna rock the Crucible!www.the-crucible.com

From the girl...
Hello to all of you wonderful women.

  i am writing to inform you about an exciting event that the Crucible has coming up on its calendar.   i hope you'll save the date! 

On Sunday November 9th, The Crucible will be sponsoring its first ever Women Only Play Party and we are inviting any and all women and transgendered folk who enjoy woman to woman BDSM to come and play with us. 
 This was an idea hatched by some of us that play in both panspace and in women's only space.  Our experiences have taught us that there are absolutely incredible, creative, interesting, magnetic women who genuinely LOVE to play with other women to be found in both places, and we want to give all of you a chance to meet and get to know each other.

Gay, straight, bisexual, bio women, transfolks, experienced, new, butch, femme, androgynous, queer, plays with women all the time, never played with women but want to, wild or mild, hard core masochist, evil sadist, light and fluffy, wanna see what BDSM is all about...doesn't matter, ALL are welcome and we would be honored if you joined us!

And just think, it's a GREAT opportunity to network before Just Play Weekend *wink. 

The Crucible Women's Party will take place on Sunday November 9 from 1-6 PM.  Cost of the event is twenty dollars and we ask that everyone bring a dish for the community table.  Play makes us hungry after all *giggles

This promises to be an incredible event.  Please help make it even more so by joining us!

Please forward this to anyone you think might be interested.
 With my best wishes and warm regards,


FIST Women/Trans Play Party THIS Saturday...Baltimore 10/18 [Friday

Philly Guerrilla Queer Bar [Monday

Is there a Guerrilla Queer Bar scene in Philly?? I did it in DC when I lived down there and had a blast. And if you don't know what I'm talking about then perhaps that answers my questions.


Almost Pretty, But Can She Curtsy: Kelli Dunham Comedy June 7th in Philly [Monday


Hey Philly folks

Since you last saw Kelli Dunham, everyone’s favorite ex-nun nerd dyke comic, she:

 -Appeared on the Discovery Channel while kissing a straight dude (okay c’mon now, not on the lips!)
-Learned how to curtsy
-Accidentally gave a lapdance to a tourist from Sweden (New York subways ARE crowded)
-Appeared in the pages of Curve Magazine
-Recorded her second live comedy show from the historic Stonewall Inn to a sold out crowd.

Now she’s coming back to Philly…
Saturday, June 7th,  (pride eve) at 8 PM at everyone’s favorite fair trade, accessible, all ages venue, JOE COFFEE, 1100 Walnut Street in Philly. It’s just a mere 8 bucks to get in and the time was chosen specifically so folks could get to the dyke march and grab dinner beforehand if that’s what pleases you. 

This show is the first stop on Kelli’s Almost Pretty (Almost) Fifty States Tour and will  be Kelli’s only full length show in Philly this year!



X-posted to queerinphilly

Hello, I just joined this comm. I'll be moving to Philly in late May and I figured I'd introduce myself. So....

Hi! I'm Maya. I work as a tattooist, painter, artist. I've lived most of my life in Chicago, but it's time for a change; besides, I can't stand the winters here anymore (It's 2pm and 8 degrees  outside --FUCK!!!). I'll be moving into the west end of Germantown; living with some friends. I'm mildly politically active (mostly focussed on Camp Trans and MWMF and their attendance policy) so I guess that makes me a part time malcontent. ;-)

I'm mostly working on doing more research on the Queer community in Philly and building any social contacts and support structure. For anyone here who has made a cross country move knows, it can be lonely moving to a new city/state. Even though I have friends in the area, it never hurts to make more contacts.

Britches vs. Butchers -- This Saturday! [Monday

The Broad Street Butchers look to hand the Philthy Britches their first ever season defeat in a rematch from the 2006 Championship bout.

Fresh off their win over the Hostile City Honeys, the Broad Street Butchers are hoping that game’s momentum will help them topple the undefeated champions of 2006, the Philthy Britches. The last time these two teams faced each other on the track, both had perfect records and were playing for the Warrior Cup in the 2006 season championship. The Britches took home the cup that night and the Butchers settled for second place.

Having lost some of their Revolutionary War-themed brigade from last year, Britches co-captains Mo Pain and Violet Temper (2006 league MVP’s), have recruited some new troops into their regiment. This will be the first regular season bout for new Britches: Cindecent Exposure, Gefilte Fists, Ginger Vitis, Gloria Grindem, Megan Trouble, and Olivia Face. Returning this year is Dara Licks, who has put up some impressive blocking stats during the inter-league season against some of derby’s most experienced jammers. Rosie Bloodbath and Dottie Horror are also starting their second season with the team, and when both of these players are on the track together, they have proven to be formidable opponents to the rest of the league. Pint-sized pivot, Janet Meano, is injured and will be serving as bench manager until she can get back on her skates.

The Broad Street Butchers have already proven that their knives are sharpened and that they wear the blood on their aprons with pride. Co-captains Annie Christ and Vixen Van Go Go have put together an impressive line-up for the 2007 season and relying on the blocking skills of Ada Baby, Suzy Skullcrusher, and Slay Belle to hold back the Britches. One of their newest jammers, Shenita Stretcher, scored a whopping 37 points in 8 jams, including 29 unanswered for points in 3 shut-out jams against the Hostile City Honeys on July 14th. Shenita’s impressive numbers are not far behind fellow Butcher, Roxy Rockett’s, 45 points in 8 jams during the same bout. Look for the twin towers, Leggs Benedict and Summer Assault, to add even more points for the Butchers as their long legs carry them down the straight-aways with seemingly effortless strides.

All the action will take place at the Sportsplex, 1331 O’Reilly Drive in Feasterville, PA. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. with the bout starting at 8:00. The pre-bout band is the Barons.

This is the last bout before The Philly Roller Girls send their all-star travel team, The Liberty Belles, to the WFTDA eastern regional tournament in Columbus, Ohio August 17-19. The tournament, dubbed the Heartland Havoc, will feature the top 12 leagues in the east. Each league will be playing to win one of four coveted slots to travel to the national tournament in Austin, Texas at the end of September. The national tournament will play the top four teams in the east against the top four teams in the west to decide the first-ever national champion of women’s flat track roller derby.

Every month the Philly Roller Girls work with a local charity at their bouts. For August, they will be donating a portion of the proceeds from the bout to Women in Transition. Women In Transition (WIT) provides empowerment counseling, referrals and advocacy to women in Philadelphia who are endangered by domestic violence and/or substance abuse. Their programs help women make positive changes in their lives, actualize their potential, and build lives for themselves and their children that are free of violence and free from addictions to drugs and alcohol. More information can be found at www.womenintransitioninc.org.

About the Philly Roller Girls
Philly Roller Girls is an all-girl, skater-owned and operated roller derby league that formed in March 2005 and is in its second season. The league is comprised of a diverse group of hard-working athletes with the strength and character to provide serious entertainment for fans while having fun in the process. The league has over 50 dedicated skaters on four home teams—the Broad Street Butchers, the Heavy Metal Hookers, the Hostile City Honeys and 2006 champions the Philthy Britches. Last October the league debuted their all-star travel team, the Liberty Belles, who are currently ranked 9th in the nation with a record of 5 straight wins after losing their first two bouts.

These women, along with many dedicated volunteers, have been working tirelessly to bring the sport of women’s roller derby back to the Philadelphia area. The Philly Roller Girls are proud members of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA), a group representing over 35 all-female, independent flat-track roller derby leagues throughout the United States. For more information, visit www.phillyrollergirls.com.

Ticket Information

They may also be purchased at the Sportsplex (1331 O'Reilly Drive, Feasterville) Crash Bang Boom (528 S. 4th Street in Center City), and 700 Club (700 N. 2nd St, Northern Liberties).
