The 3rd Annual Denton, Texas Femme Fest is a benefit concert and art auction intended to celebrate and honor the artistic contributions and talents of rising local female artists who are often underrepresented in their communities. 
This year Femme Fest will be fundraising for the 13th feminist bookstore in the U.S., Southern Woman’s Bookstore. 
Femme Fest will also be having a BOOK/ZINE DRIVE this year for Southern Woman’s Bookstore. Please donate any used/unused books. We prefer books and zines written by or about women, people of color, and LGBTQ folks.
Even if you cannot attend Femme Fest, we still accept book/zine donations via mail! We are also looking for visual art created by female-identifying artists to feature in our silent art auction. Please contact us at SouthernWomansBookstore@gmail.com for a mailing address to donate books, zines, and/or visual art.
We invite businesses, organizations, media sources and YOU to consider being involved in the conservation and creation of knowledge, art, and social justice by donating to Southern Woman’s Bookstore.

***URGENT PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT***
Grindr, a popular app for gay men, now carries an urgent warning for users in Egypt. According to many sources, Egyptian authorities are posing as LGBT people on various social media sites to identify and arrest homosexual people. The app is urging users in the region to proceed with extreme caution, especially when identifying themselves or arranging meetings/hookups. While so far the focus seems to be on gay men, all LGBT people in the area should be cautious. Reports show that Egyptian police have carried out violent raids on private homes which lead to the arrests of several gay men. These men were then subjected to disturbing medical “exams.” Police also raided an LGBT party last year, violently arresting many and sentencing them to up to 12 years hard labour. While homosexuality is not illegal in Egypt, athorities are using sexual deviance, debauchery and insulting public morals as terms for the crackdown. Many claim this fresh attack on the LGBT community is lead by President Abdel-Fattah Al-Sisi who wishes for his country to be more Islamic.
For all of my LGBT friends here on tumblr, please be extremely careful as this situation develops. Remember to clear your search history, use private browsing if possible, and be extremely cautious with who you talk to online.

BUY A ZINE TO HELP FUND-RAISE FOR SOUTHERN WOMAN’S BOOKSTORE!
Muchacha Fanzine presents Issue #9 “Body Positivity”
This edition of Muchacha aims to challenge the mainstream white/heterosexual/able-bodied/cisgender-centric feminist movement of “body positivity.” The intention of this issue is to reclaim the term “body positivity” in a way that is inclusive of diverse voices and encourages reflectivity on how bodies can also be cause for pain, conflict, and/or healing.
This 40 page edition includes body positivity visual art, a letter to a hipster guy who would never date a vegan, a brown body at a punk show, gentrification, song lyrics, empowering poetry, body diversity in videos and tv shows, if barbie were real, body positivity from a queer, fat, trans*, chronically ill perspective, self-love collages, a roller derby story, a Southern Woman’s Bookstore announcement, and more!
If you haven’t heard, Muchacha Fanzine/the Denton Femme Fest organizers have teamed up to open the 13th feminist bookstore in the U.S.: Southern Woman’s Bookstore in Denton, Texas.All proceeds of “Body Positivity” will be donated to Southern Woman’s Bookstore. 
We are different from other bookstores, because we place an emphasis on honoring diverse books and zines written by women, people of color, and LGBTQ individuals, because we feel that marginalized voices, as these, need to be more widely represented and accessible to the community.
