Feminine Moments' newsletter - May 2020

Free Online Events All Summer

Edited by Birthe Havmoeller

Dear Reader,

I am happy to be back with the May issue of Feminine Moments' newsletter. COVID19 happened and suddenly all queer organisers go online with their pride events. I didn't see this comming... but I am happy that pride organisers and artists contribute to creating a dialog with all of us who are home alone in self-protective isolation. Social media sites (such as facebook) are good places to search for the free online pride events. Michelle Handelman has contacted me (thanks Michelle) because she is streaming her film BLOODSISTERS LEATHER, DYKES AND SADOMASOCHISM (1995) for free during the Pride Month. And UK Painter Sadie Lee will be in a live video conversation with Anna Mcnay later this week. Read more below.

This month I am happy to introduce you to painter and printmaker Pamela Dodds. See Pamela's artist's statement & images and watch the video of her online artist talk hosted by the LGBT Center of Greater Cleveland. She began her art practice in Boston and has spent several periods in Cleveland, Ohio, where she found a vibrant art scene. After living in the US for many years she returned in 2008 to Toronto, Canada.

Visual Re-branding of the Art Blog

I have felt the need for a visual re-branding of Feminine Moments for  the last year. Earlier this month I played around with the graphics of the art blog and have given it a new visual format I am really happy with the new free Wordpress theme which I have installed on the website..

See: www.femininemoments.dk/blog

 Love and kisses,
