Feminine Moments' newsletter

October 2016

Edited by Birthe Havmoeller

Dear Reader,

I send a happy festival to the queer community in London will be celebrating the 9th GFEST queer arts festival in November. The festival dates are: November 7 – 19, 2016.

This month I have added a submission form to the website, hoping this will make it easier for you and your lesbian/queer feminist artist friends to join Feminine Moments and submit artist statements and visual materials for the art blog. If you have any questions regarding my work, promoting fine art by lesbian, bisexual and queer women artists or about the website, do write to me. My email is at the bottom of this newsletter.
