Call for Performers!

 

“Sin at Kremwerk is having a benefit for Gothic Pride Seattle on Friday, Krem PorsterDecember 23rd. We are looking for fetish performers (5-7) and 1 host for the evening. Unfortunately cannot do fire performances since Kremwerk is basically a basement and the ceilings aren’t very high! But sword swallowing, shibari, burlesque, contortion, non-fire poi throwing, etc. is great! Ideally, these people would be volunteering their time as it is for a benefit.

Kremwerk hosted a very successful Gothic Pride Fundraiser in May. It is located in Downtown/Capitol Hill intersection at 1809 Minor Ave.”

Please email jm@kremwerk.com for any questions!

Happy thanksgiving

From us at Gothic Pride Seattle,
 
Today we are thankful for our strong, passionate, and caring community. We hope this day finds you surrounded by love ones, friends, and family of all types. Today is a day of healing, of bridging divides, and accepting, this year more than most it’s truly needed.
 
We have a lot of struggles coming up the next few years, and we will bring in a more accepting world together as a community with love and work. But for today lets be thankful what we do have, the strong bounds we have both in family and friends.
Happy thanksgiving,
 
Love Kenny,
(GPS Board member)
