VERNISSAGE (BIG OPENING)
The Radical Faeries at 40!
40 great years of Radical Faerie Gatherings
R.O.P.P. – Republic of Patta Patta
Margaretenstraße 60, 1050 Wien
This Summer we celebrate our 40 years of Radical Faeridom. We remember that in 1979, the first call for a Spiritual Conference for the Radical Faeries was sent out, and the Faeries who answered the call, discovering who they were, planted the seed for radical traditions, re-opened new and oldpaths, and sang and sat and rejoyced!
This summer we also celebrate 50 years of rebellion after the emblematic Stonewall Riots of St-Christopher Street in 1969, fighting police harassment and opposing all forms of violence against the Queer folk. We remember that the Trans Women, the Drag Queens, the Hustlers and the kids of the streets were the first to start it, and that our Freedom and Faerydom owe them so much!
This FOTO Exhibition draws a wide spectrum over 40 years of Radical Faerie Gatherings. “Radical” in English means to be open for CHANGE. Let’s do it together!
