“This flyer, a pre–Riot Grrrl ‘manifesto’ that was later repurposed for the minizine Riot Grrrl, is the first image in the book. Kathleen told me she made it in 1989, when she was volunteering at Safeplace, Olympia’s long-lived domestic-violence shelter and advocacy organization. Designed so that it could be folded up into a small rectangle with the word trust on top, this flyer was both a secret invitation and a public announcement, much like Riot Grrrl itself.”
Archivist Lisa Darms reflects on her favorites from the Riot Grrrl Collection.

  8. CHSHTT

    • I’m at the stage where I know intellectually that CHSH starts in three days, but somehow it doesn’t feel real. I don’t think it’ll feel real until somebody squeezes my butt for the first time. 
    • My plane lands at O’Hare shortly before noon, for anyone who’s curious. If you’re getting in around the same time, let me know and maybe we can trek to the hotel together.
    • Send me an askbox message if you want my phone number for texting purposes. I’m also on Kik as 5by5kevin, if you prefer that method.
    • I am going to tacklehug squibble when I see him.
    • I am going to kiss a lot of you on the face.
    • Gentle beard strokings are available anytime. Vigorous beard strokings must be scheduled in advance and done in private.
    • THREE DAYS, Y’ALL.
