#Blkgrlswurld did the damn thing with their first ever punk fest, zine fair, and panel for punks of color.
#Blkgrlswurld’s first ever Punk Fest was an amazing event as I personally witnessed the coming together of all these womxn having different effects on people. I watched skeptical faces at the Punks of Color Panel suddenly realize that there was substance and cultural value to what panelists were sharing through personal stories. I watched young womxn curious about live metal shows seeking guidance on how to safely attend local shows. I witnessed femme musicians watching each other’s performances and museum visitors becoming inspired by the Free Black Women’s Library.
If you weren't able to attend, watch the panel recording below, and read the full recap (and see more rad pics) at Punk Fest & Zine Fair Recap on blkgrlswurld.
