Feminine Moments' newsletter - Pride Month, June 2021

Feminine Moments' newsletter - Pride Month, June 2021

Edited by Birthe Havmoeller

Dear Reader,

Apologies to my loyal readers, I skipped the May issue of the newsletter because I was busy creating the self-published free ebook, Queer Tango Futures; Dancing for Change in a Post-Covid World. The ebook is an anthology with essays and images by dancers for the international Queer Tango Movement which I have co-edited with Ray Batchelor and Mori Plaschinski. The book features a few of my queer tango images, my essay 'Queer Tango vs queer tango' and materials by 22 queer tango dancers.

This month I am delighted to introduce you to fine art photographer Renée Jacobs. Renée is based in France. See her artist's statement and erotic photographs of women on the art blog (link below). In her statement, Renée mentions her forthcoming books which will be published in the fall of 2021. Thanks, Renée for writing to me! I also want to thank Birgitta Hosesa (London) for sharing her lecture with me/us, see her video in the  section 'Lectures and Videos' below.
