WTF Soda City!

September 19 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Women-Trans-Femme Soda City is a weekly meeting of bike enthusiasts who identify as Women/Trans/Femme. We hold meetings/open shop at the Cola Town Bike Collective shop at 1823 Superior St. from 6-9 every Tuesday, starting March 21st. This is a space for community, riding bikes, fixing bikes, and having fun together!
WTF is WTF??!?
(this definition lifted from Grease Rag of the Twin Cities: http://greaserag.org/user_blogs/lowrah/wtf-is-wtf/ )
Working definition:
> Absolutely anyone who self-idenifies as “Women, Trans, Femme”
> Abbreviation for a term of empowering endearment for people who do not benefit from cis male (when you are assigned male at birth and you identify as a man) privilege. (Examples of cis privilege and discussion of intersectionality)
> WTF applies to the beautiful rainbow of identities who do not benefit from cis male privilege including, but absolutely not limited to: Cis women/trans men/trans women who are masculine/feminine of center, cis men who do not benefit from cis male privilege, trans folks, unicorns, gender queer, agender, gender fluid, folks who are gender non-conforming, gender fuckers, butches, bois, queens, sissies, femmes…
WTF is not about bodies, WTF is about self-identification.
WTF declares that, although we occupy a huge spectrum of identities, we stand in solidarity and community other struggles against ableism, sexism, homophobia, transmisogyny, transphobia, racism, classism, Islamaphobia and other oppressive powers.
WTF means that we never tear each other down, but we always intentionally work to lift each other up.
