∞ ∇ ★ QUEERISTAN 2012 – Amsterdam’s queer festival for radical politics, arts, action, community, and fun – MAY 18-20 ★ ∇ ∞¶

All the freaky people make the beauty of the world – Michael Franti

ATTENTION all queers, weirdos, sexual outlaws, challenging bodies, intersectional axes, fractured identities, homothugs, erotic artists, anachronisms, gender (un)performers, freaks, impractical shit-starters, villainous friends, revolutionaries, decadent peasants, dirty queens, art rebels, international anti-divas, prime numbers, friendly berserkers, confused youth, troubled elders, wild nothings, and everyone in-between! Queeristan 2012 is on the horizon!
What is Queeristan? Certainly not another country! But while the collective behind it rejects “law & order” and divisive borders, Queeristan is indeed about providing a space: not only an autonomous space that dodges logics of profit and commercialisation, but also a platform to both explore and counter the normative workings of gender, sexuality and identity.

Queeristan is a safe environment for queers and a factory of resistance. Queeristan wants to be a festival where dissent unpredictably materialises and becomes shareable in a performance, in a workshop, in a work of art, in partying all night long… in fact: THERE IS NO FIXED FORMULA FOR QUEERISTAN.

Join us in transforming Amsterdam into Queeristan this May 18-20! Workshops, performances, art, encounters, and togetherness will be held at Op De Valreep (Polderweg 620) all weekend. Nighttime fun goes down at OCCII (Amstelveenseweg 134), and starts Wednesday May 17 with the festival pre-party (featuring queer darlings Lovers), followed by a night of performance and experiment on Friday the 18, and, of course, a monstrous queer party on Saturday May 19.

Stay tuned for information about our final schedule, actions and demonstrations, music, and performances at queeristan.org. In the meantime, support the festival by volunteering or attending our benefit events:

Dinner 19th April @ Joe’s Garage 

Brunch 22nd April @ Op De Valreep
