Black Femme Survival is a social justice platform & community healing project which creates brave spaces for Black & Brown Queer Femmes of all identities to learn, heal, & thrive together.

                                  

This online platform is centered upon uplifting the voices of black & brown femmes to share their survival stories.


TO REVEL & CELEBRATE THE FACT THAT WE ARE STILL HERE.

& TO PASS DOWN OUR WISDOM & SURVIVAL GENIUS.


This online platform features articles written for & by black & brown femmes. It features video interviews showcasing incredible femmes, sharing their stories of survival and thriving.  These video interviews and discussions are with folks who within their lives and academic and artistic fields, create healing spaces, & think critically about survival and thriving as praxis.

“This project was created “in the hopes that this multi-media approach will increase access to crucial resources for young femmes of color, in need of supportive & resilient community.”


-The Advocate, LGBTQ magazine, June 2018




The Black Femme Survival Guide

is a self-help, self care resource for black & brown queer femmes of all identities. This guide connects and honors the legacy of queer black femmes who have struggled, thrived, and created before us and honors oral history and life experience as knowledge. In this guide we begin to unpack and develop an understanding of radical self-care as a politicized act of resistance. 

                            

The Black Femme Survival Guide:


UNPACKS THE TERM SELF CARE WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF WHITE SUPREMACY


<h5></h5>

Unveils the capitalist commercialization of the self Care industry



Situates caring for ourselves and one another within a deep history of community survival

ILLUSTRATES HOW TO CULTIVATE NOURISHING RELATIONSHIPS


Investigates how to to curate lives which lead by our values & priorities


Creates a framework for how to listen to our needs with Compassion





The Book is Filled With:

  • SPELLS

  • MANIFESTATION MODELS

  • HERBS

  • ILLUSTRATIONS


<h5>Each chapter includes personal activities & workbook pages that work from a trauma-informed perspective to assist you on your personal healing journey! </h5>


Why Is this Guide Important?

Because black & brown femmes & nonbinary folk deserve to heal. We deserve to be heard. We deserve to get credit where credit is due. That survival is genius & so are our stories. We deserve to have a self-help book written just for us.


Pricing

This book was intended for black & brown femmes, nonbinary folk, & gender nonconforming folk of all gender identities. However there is immense learning to be done and as such the Black Femme Survival guide can begin important conversations about honoring the emotional labor of black & brown folks, unlearning toxic aspects of masculinity, & engaging in reparations whenever possible. This Guide is applicable for everyone.

This Guide is an important reflection of the power of healing within social justice work. Therefore, pricing is built to reflect the power & Privileges of identities who choose to engage with the work. Through this pricing we invite you to engage in restorative economics with us.


$15 PEOPLE OF COLOR
$30+ UP WHITE FOLKS

We live in, and therefore participate in, a system which disproportionately economically oppresses people of color & black folks, especially those of femme-spectrum folks. Your participation in redistribution of wealth, even in small ways, is tangibly and actively helping to dismantle these racist, transphobic & femmephobic systems.


If you truly want to make a difference, invest $$ in supporting black & brown folks healing together.




Black Femme Survival Workshops 

are an opportunity to do powerful radical self work, together in intentional community.We create dynamic, engaging, transformative brave spaces where participants discuss & experience the intersections of identity, care, resistance, & survival. 

In BFS Workshops, we talk, dance, move, trust, challenge ourselves, & support one another to step into our power & create in ourselves the love, belonging, & joy we deserve. Workshops are creative, customizable & always trauma-informed.



WE ARE AVAILABLE FOR BOOK READINGS, CREATIVE WORKSHOPS, TEACHING ARTIST PERFORMANCES, SOCIAL JUSTICE TRAININGS, SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS,EDITORIAL WRITING, OR TO ABLE AT YOUR EVENT in:

Elementary, middle, high schools, universities, community organizations, & more across New England!

We need to share tips and tricks with each other! Recipes, Tinctures, Spells. Books. Meditations.... Ways of being and relating to ourselves and others.

In an age where we are being devalued, let’s continue to take care of one another. This is our healing praxis in action!
