The informal group LezFem traditionally takes the stage of FIRSTBORN GIRL with the well-known LezFem poetry slam. Writing, sharing and celebrating female poetry is our act of building new, free spaces and realities. Expect an hour-long fire on the stage caused by powerful, loud, passionate, queer, fierce and provocative verses from the female voices of this city. Again, we make a combo from performances of our famous (and lesser known) female poets and special guests, who will present their favorite “écriture feminine poems. Let’s open FIRST BORN GIRL with female poetry! LezFem is a lesbian-feminist group created through socializing and long conversations between several girls who recognize themselves as lesbians, political lesbians, feminists. Our goal is to increase the visibility and political relevance of lesbian and feminist activism, and to promote fresh strategies of resistance to the dominant ideological concepts of patriarchy, chauvinism, heteronormativity, nationalism, clericalism. We strive to create an authentic political voice by searching for the different female experiences in the past as we build their meaning and continuity today, as well as to the political articulation of everyday experiences and social relations between women, not only emotional, but also economical, professional, in relations with friends and family. It is in these female realities, not imagined life styles, that LezFem finds a source of knowledge, values, energy and power.
