CLIT Fest Chicago 2013
C.L.I.T. Fest (Combating Latent Inequality Together Fest) in an annual three day DIY punk/alternative music and workshop festival organized by and celebrating women, trans, genderqueer, youth, and people of color of all shapes and sizes in the punk scene. This fest encourages all marginalized folx and their allies to come together to combat latent inequalities in our scene and in the world at large!
What does "combating latent inequality together" mean? In punk and radical spaces, folx often think that racism, sexism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, queerphobia and other forms of discrimination are absent, because punk is an alternative to mainstream society.
However, these forces are present in our scene and need to be fought against to maintain healthy outlets for all people to express themselves. We aim to collectively build empowering relationships, smash long held silences, showcase our diverse talents and cultures, and fund-raise to support organizations that help our communities thrive!
Despite the name, this is not a body-centered event. We encourage ALL people to join us as allies in raging against oppression.
**We aim to create a safer space for people of all ages, genders and abilities to enjoy themselves, so please be respectful towards bands, your fellow attendees and the venues. Alcohol, drugs and hate speech will not be tolerated.Unfortunately finding a venue for CLIT Fest Chicago has been a struggle and Sunday's venue - Benton House (3052 S Gratten, Chicago, IL) is not wheelchair accessible, however, we will be as accommodating as possible with anyone that might require assistance up to the gym to watch the shows. We apologize for this, however, our venue for Friday and Saturday, the Co-Prosperity Sphere (3219 S. Morgan, Chicago, IL)is wheelchair accesible.**
Hope to see you in August!
