Patricia Silva is a media artist and instructor based in New York City, and the editor of Larker Anthology, an independent magazine celebrating the visual heritage of the bi+ spectrum. This month, on March 9th, Patricia is introducing Vivid Glances, a program of bi+ short films that they guest programmed for Anthology Film Archives as part of New York City’s Feminist Film Week. Patricia’s videos on bi+ visual culture have screened in film festivals from Brazil to Mongolia and earned a Jury Prize in Cannes in 2017, in addition to being screened at BFI Flare, Mix NYC Experimental Film Festival, Doc NYC, Queer Streifen, Scotland’s Queer International Film Festival, Rio Gender and Sexuality Film Festival, and at New York Feminist Film Week, among others. In 2017, two of their videos were projected onto the facade of New Museum, New York, in the “State of Emergency” projection by the Illuminator in 2018 and 2017.

From her website: Shelby Zoe Coley is a Black queer filmmaker based in New York City working across nonfiction

 and documentary forms. A protegé of Sundance veteran Madeleine Olnek (The Foxy Merkins, Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same) and two-time Tribeca Film Festival producer Abou Farman (Vegas: A True Story, Icaros: A Vision), Shelby uses rhythm, portraiture, and the spoken word to explore intersections between queerness, race and creative practices––from documenting renowned lesbian performance troupe Split Britches, to producing a web series whose direct cinematic style endearingly earned it the title of “the hipster’s Grey Gardens.” Her work has been featured in renowned publications such as Afropunk, Slay TV and Curve Magazine. Most recently, Shelby’s short film “Manley Stanley Takes New York” about a British drag king won the Audience Choice Award for Best Women’s Short at Philadelphia Qflix and is nominated for the 2017 Iris Prize. Her short film on lesbian-feminist theatre troupe Split Britches premiered at the Provincetown Film Festival in June 2017. Shelby is a 2017-2018 recipient of the Puffin Foundation Grant for Video/Film.

 

Edythe Wooley is a performance artist with an interdisciplinary practice. Described as “Surreal and sassy as fuck” (Great SEXpectations) Edythe’s performances confuse the glamorous and the grotesque creating dreamlike, visceral and playfully political shows that dismantle misogynist society replacing it with Edythe’s queer imaginings. 

Edythe’s drag persona, Manly Stanley won Man Up London. The Guardian wrote “ [he] brilliantly subverts extreme masculinity.” He has toured internationally, featured in award winning documentary Manly Stanley Takes New York (Shortlisted Iris Prize Cardiff, Audience Award Women’s Best Short Philadelphia QFlix) and performed alongside Ru Paul drag icon Sasha Velour (Eat, Sleep, Drag Repeat). 

In 2011 Edythe co-founded devised theatre company The Wardrobe Ensemble (The National Theatre, Bristol Old Vic). Who are making a new play co-produced with Complicite. Edythe has performed with Raucous Collective and taught devised theatre on the Rose Bruford College MA co-directing the graduates’ degree show.

Edythe is currently doing an MFA at Bard College NY.

Lynnette McFadzen is the current President of BiNet USA. Lynnette is the former producer for this podcast. In February, she was awarded the 2018 Brenda Howard Memorial Award by PFLAG Queens, for her activism in the Bisexual+ community. In addition to all she is and does for the bi+ family, she is a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, living in Portland, Oregon.

Only Yesterday

(By Cher Guevara)

Only yesterday
I stood in the middle
Of a hundred thousand brothers and sisters
Cheering, clapping
Feeling so free and safe.

Only yesterday
I saw thousands of flags;
All the Colors under our umbrella
Waving without fear.

Only yesterday
We felt on top on the world,
On the peak of the mountain.

Now our eyes stream
To clean the blood off the bar.
Streams running down the hearts of our nation
Cleansing this river of hate;
That still cuts through our lives,
That still cuts down our lives.

Only yesterday we cheered,
Now today we mourn,
And tomorrow we re-organize;

A family together undeterred
Still marching forward.

We grieve with our community….

Bi+: Self-Care and Intersecting Identities Day Long Institute

Take time this year to spend a focused and fulfilling day at the Creating Change Bi+ Institute where our theme will be self-care and intersectional identities. Bisexual, Pansexual, Polysexual, Fluid and Queer (Bi+) organizers are invited to participate. We are all united by being bi+, but we also have many other identities that shape our lived experiences as bi+ people. Identities such as people of color, elders, youth, trans, gender nonconforming, disabled, neurodiverse and many more make up our diverse community. Learn how to nurture and care for yourself and your communities while bringing your whole self into these spaces. Discussions will include Intersectionality, Biphobia and Monosexism, and learning how to develop programs. We will also have open space for attendees to suggest topics and a space for exploring the Bi+ Agenda for the future.
