Introducing … Jade Phoenix
One of the events I am most proud of occurring at Nous Tous happened just over a week ago. Femme Salon reading series launched on August 26th to a crowd that completely packed the space and it was an amazing event. It was a celebration and safe space for femme voices that are all too often silenced and spoken for. I am super proud of the success of the event and really grateful that Nous Tous has become the kind of space that can harbor this kind of event.
Unfortunately, the producer of the event is facing some financial hardship and instead of simply donating myself (which I did) I thought this might be a great opportunity for a few members of our community to help also. Jade is a working artist transwoman of color and any creative can attest to the fact that gigs are not always stead, so funds do not always appear with good timing.
She is is about $200 bucks short of rent, and that means that 10 people donating $20 dollars should help plenty. I know this is the type of audience that appreciates art and the emotional labor that comes with it. On this Labor Day I would love to encourage you to support, Jade, her daughter, and her work. If you can’t help out now, please follow her on social media and keep a look out for ways to support in the future. Payment details below. Thank you for showing up.
