“Pulling the Pieces Together” August 17th-19th 2012 Baltimore, MD

Brought to you by The Femme Conference Steering Committee, A project of the Femme Collective

Femme2012: Pulling the Pieces Together is a multi-threaded conference and forum for those who think about, talk about, and create Femme as a queer gender and identity.

Following our Femme2006, 2008, and 2010 conferences in San Francisco, Chicago, and Oakland, where hundreds of femmes and allies gathered for workshops, panels, films, visual art galleries, and performances, we again invite femmes of all kinds and their allies to continue the conversation by participating in Femme 2012 as presenters and participants.

The Femme Conference provides a weekend by, for, and about queer femme-identified people and our allies.

Every other year the Femme Conference steering committee co-creates with you, our femme community, an opportunity to hold and experience femme-centered space. Together we bring each other thought-provoking workshops, brilliant keynotes, glittering performances, resource sharing, community building, and so much more.

Our 2012 event aims to explore how we grow, build, nurture, and align the many pieces of our communities and identities while building femme community and power.

Our conferences seeks to explore, discuss, dissect, and support Queer Femme as a transgressive, gender-queer, stand-alone, and empowered identity and provide a space for organizing and activism within Queer communities. We hope to attract people of all genders who are interested in a deeper understanding of Femme identity, culture, and history as well as Femmes interested in learning, teaching, connecting, and building community geared towards social change.

Interested in volunteering? We’re looking for local coordinators and volunteers from every city and state, especially in the Baltimore area. For more information please contact our Volunteer Coordinator Rachel Kahn at

  1. I am a video-ethnograher here in B-more and would be willing to video-tape sessions during the conference and share them with the group in return for admission.
