Coffee Club! … IDA fundraiser … ! tomorrow!

secretdoorprojects:

Saturday, September 1, 1-8pm

186 Carpenter St, Providence

This Coffee Club is a fundraiser for Work Hard Stay Hard, the queer dandy skillshare / workweek that happens every year to sustain IDA (an amazing queer sanctuary space in rural Tennessee). I’m not sure if anyone from Prov is going this year, but we wanted to send them some money anyway to help with projects!

Coffee Club is like a DIY weird coffee shop event, open in the afternoon, featuring cheap coffee / iced coffee / homemade bread / other baked goods / tables to draw at / friends / new friends…

it’s not really a “club”, or if it is, it’s a club that’s open to all, I hope to see you there. ♥ ian

Please join us for the 5th in our series of queer movie nights at Libertalia this month! This Friday at 7:30pm, we&#8217;ll be watching The Raspberry Reich, a 2004 satirical &amp; pornographic film directed by Bruce LaBruce, which follows the exploits of a group of German armed revolutionaries fighting against bourgeois capitalist society and heterosexuality.
Details:Friday June 29th — Doors at 7:30pm, Movie starts at 8pmLibertalia, 280 Broadway, Providence [FB event link]FREE - donations are encouraged to help pay our rent
90 minutes, not rated, in color, in EnglishDiscussion to followBring snacks if you want, but please remember that Libertalia is a dry space.
Please be advised: the film contains explicit pornographic content!
Writer and director Bruce LaBruce says,

'The Raspberry Reich' is an art/porn film that, like all my films, uses pornography as a starting point to examine sexual politics and homosexual radicalism. (For me, working in pornography is like a genre exercise.) 'The Raspberry Reich' concerns an all-male gang that does not strictly identify itself as homosexual but whose members nonetheless are sexually active with each other … [It] examines identity politics, emphasizing that homosexual identity is fluid and can be separated from a strict gay politic. In 'The Raspberry Reich', Gudrun initiates the sexual dynamic between the heterosexual males who idolize her; she recognizes the innate radical potential of homosexual expression and attempts to manipulate it towards her revolutionary ends. The fact that she is constantly quoting Reich and Marcuse is no coincidence: the [Red Army Faction] and other radical movements of the seventies believed in the sexually revolutionary ideals of these post-Freudian thinkers, and fought against all forms of sexual repression and the constraints of gender. (One of Gudrun’s favourite slogans is 'Heterosexuality is the Opiate of the Masses!') It is essential that my film engage these notions with sexually explicit content, for in this way it mirrors all the sexual ambivalence and ambiguities of the radical movements that emerged in the sixties.
