Number 602 and counting

602. Just what's significant about that number you wonder? Well, it's the number of this posting, meaning that this forum has produced Six Hundred Two versions of CorneliusOnpoint. Wow, that's a lot mouthing off, updating, factoids, and veribage that has passed through this portal in search of empowering our readers in the GLBTQ community and beyond. If you count the actual words, it's some where in the ballpark of over 100,000 words that have been delievered to this site over the last 4 years. How sweet it has been, especially as we prepared to take our final bow come December 31, 2009. But until then, let's see what's really going on....

Teachable Moments: The Center for Artistic Revolution will be sponsoring a workshop entitled, "Butch/Femme in Arkansas & Ourselves" on Monday, November 30 at 6:00 pm, 1st Presbyterian Church. The seesion will explore the words "butch and femme" which can bring a lot of images and thoughts to mind. Some say these are lesbian identities of the past. Others purport butch/femme identities are expanding to include various gender presentations and identities including transfolk, studs, AGs, and more. There will be a lively discussion and workshop on the history of butch/femme, the significance of these identities and roles today, and our own views on what butch/femme means in our lives and in our rural/southern queer movement. ALL are welcome to attend this workshop, including but not limited to butches, femmes, questioning, curious, and allies of ALL AGES. This event is FREE and will be followed by a social with a Potluck social at 8PM. The workshop will be facilitated by Amanda Harris. Amanda is a queer-southern-feminist-femme living in Brooklyn.
