Who am I and Why did I join yellowarmbands?
I have worn a yellow armband for the past three years at MWMF in support of all womyn in womyn's space.  This past festival, I met Dandy and the yellow crew.  It was great to see even more organization around this visual statement.

Name:
sue, susan, cunt, mama

Age:
28

Location:
Chicago IL  (soon to be Northampton MA as of Monday)

I identify as a:
Queer, Femme, Working-Class, Fat, Fox, Feminist, Cunt

I have attended as a Michigan Festie:
The past four years.

I would like to be a Festie this year (2007):
Yes.  And I think it's HUGELY important for us all to make a committment to go and let LV know that it is because we are hoping to change from within.  Afterall, the festival is built by the womyn that attend it.

I have attended Camp Trans:
The past four years (not as a camper but as a frequent visitor).

I would like to be attend CT this year (2007):
Of course.  I fully believe in the community that CT creates.

I would like to camp at CT this year (2007):
No.  I am committed to MWMF and making change occur from conversations & education from within.  However, I am also committed to being in constant conversation with CT and in constant support of CT.

I have never camped at Michigan, but I would camp there if the WBW policy was changed:
n/a

More about me:
I work in social services as a Head Start Coordinator.  I sell my panties (among other things) on Craig's List.  I am a radical activist and performance artist.  Two of my groups that I am the most proud of are esoterica and Lickity Split.  I dance radical burlesque in my partner's queer burlesque shows...Gurlesque Burlesque.  I am on the Board of Directors of the Chicago Abortion Fund.  I am a photographer  for Nightspots and other such annoying gay rags.  I am a published writer...albeit Curve magazine and other such pseudo embarrassing publications.  My partner & I are moving to Western MA on Monday.  What the?!?!?!  I have attened both CT & MWMF for the past four years.  My first year, I was in love/hate with both CT & MWMF but I have seen some great advancement on both sides the three years following.  If you care to hear my truths about that first year, I would love to tell.  But both have made such great advances the past three years that I hatre to dwell on the negative.  However, I will say that my gorwn love for CT was mostly due to a little fest infulltrater name Jess.
