Artist & Activist Viva Ruiz On Divine Inspiration And The Joy Of Abortion

0 Comments 🕔28 May 2015

We first encountered Viva Ruiz's performative advocacy during Milk and Night's "Pervasive Feminisms" exhibition earlier this year. Her fiery spoken word infused with song circled around sex work and sisterhood, pleasure and power — she's a true creatrix with a conscience. Vocalist of both DFA’s The Crystal Ark and electronic Latino art goth group Escandalo, Ruiz is a rare breed of feminist, whose queer, spirituality-infused radical convictions bridge the gap...

Can We Talk About Attractive Privilege For A Second Here?

0 Comments 🕔26 May 2015

Hey. So, I know we live in an era where people are constantly outing each others’ privileges: male privilege, white privilege, ableist privilege, etc. To me, these things are pretty obvious. Being a man, being white, being physically able are all objective qualities that can be quantified and demarcated. It’s easy to identify who the people who possess these privileges are, and it’s easy to talk about how these privileges have helped them in their...

If you made it to Legacy of the Witch this past March, you might have had the pleasure of hearing actress Sara Crow perform a reading of artist/writer Morgan Claire Sirene's "Open Letter To Brigitte Bardot." The text is raw and explicit, emotionally honest and funny — we thought it was a perfect way to open an evening of burlesque and music. If you didn't catch the act, you can now read...

Great Moments In Historical Sluttery: Anita Berber, The Scandal of Weimar Berlin

0 Comments 🕔21 May 2015

Berlin between the wars was a place of social unrest and wildly creative art. Germany’s defeat in World War I found the country in the grips of an identity crisis that drove many artists, writers, and performers to reject the conservative values that led to devastating warfare and embrace new, revolutionary forms of expression. In the chaotic early days of the Weimar Republic, the siren song of Berlin lured the creative class to its embrace...

Author Wednesday Black On Humor, Hipsters, Erotic Architecture & How To Train Your Virgin

3 Comments 🕔19 May 2015

Wednesday Black's new novel How To Train Your Virgin will erase all the cringe-inducing conceptions you have about contemporary erotica before the first chapter finishes. Deftly synthesizing myth and fatalistic fantasy with nubile hipster urbanity, Black (named Leia Menlove IRL) has written a genre-defying work that is both absurd, funny and hot as fuck. How To Train Your Virgin is the first release in Badlands' New Lovers series, which publishes fresh female...

I Don’t Play Games: Bad At Sports, Bad At Dating

My name is Morgan. I am a queer, cisgender woman (who prefers partners of any/non gender who have cocks — for the sake of continuity and criticism I will say "man" in this essay) and I refuse to participate in traditional heterosexual gender normative behaviors. I don't play games. Although I date all kinds of people, I mean ALL kinds of people, I would say that I am not exactly successful at dating. Meaning, I...
