LEELAH’S LAW SOLIDARITY DEMO | GLASGOW

Saturday, March 14 at 10:00am

Meeting opposite Merchant Square

This is in memory of Leelah Alcorn herself, with the intent of making sure her final words and wishes are heard. This is a call to enact "Leelah’s Law", which would ban the practice of so-called "transgender conversion therapy" in the United States. This is also in support of transgender individuals of all ages and is a call for information on transgender and gender non-conforming identities to be taught compassionately and appropriately in schools from an early age.

This event is being organized by members of the transgender community and allies working together, and in conjunction with the LGBTQI+ societies of the University of Glasgow and Strathclyde University.

Saturday, 21 March at 2:00pm

Tchai Ovna, 42 Otago Lane, G12 8PB

An afternoon of riotous words and mutinous music to kickstart Glasgow’s newest DIY performance rabble: Robust Hummingbird. Come and watch the wings unfurl and shiver into movement.

Zipping your way this time:

TRAVELS BY TELEPHONE: A softer plum isn’t in the basket. Dreamy, bespectacled indie folk from York twisting tales of natural wonders and gentle epiphanies.

http://travelsbytelephone.bandcamp.com/

JENN HART: Bristolian bee buzzing in a painted jar. Jenn sews radical rhymes to tie nasties up in knots.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AMVqKe8G_jE

HENRY RABY: Boots crunching on pebbles. Punk poetry from York to get greased up and wriggle through tubes to.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fEce07ORBD4

FAILBETTER FIRESINGERS: Buds blooming beneath swirling skies. Sincere and affecting voices fae Glasgow making you sway, sigh, and feel warm inside.

DANGLE MANATEE: The beast that birthed the hummingbird giving themselves a cheeky slice of the action. Dada punk folk gurgling against the grain.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QK6OgVBOU34

All absolutely and joyously free, but if you can afford to then please support the artists by dropping some pennies, pounds, and trinkets into the smelly cap that will be passed around x

Glasgow Social Centre presents… Double film screening + meal

Saturday, 28 March at 4:00pm – 7:00pm

Garnethill Multicultural Centre, 21 Rose Street, G3 6RE

The newly reformed Glasgow Social Centre collective invite you to our first fundraising event: come along and eat, watch a film, find out what we’re organising in the city and how you can get involved.

We will be screening 2 films simultaneously, one family friendly film in a supervised creche space, and a documentary in the second room. Parents should feel free to move between both rooms as they feel comfortable.

After the film there will be food and space to chat about the social centre and ways to get involved. Food will be vegan, and there will be healthy snacks for the kids.

We are trying to raise money for the new social centre, but we understand that a lot of folks are skint, so whilst we would love a suggested donation of £3, the most important thing is that people come along, and those without papers or on low/no incomes are welcome to attend for free. If you’ve got lots of money feel free to give us most of it!

FAMILY FILM: Spirited Away

DOCUMENTARY: Concerning Violence

Sarah Cassidy: Sarahdactyl

Saturday, 28th March, at 6:00pm-7:00pm

Yesbar,14 Drury Street, Glasgow, G2 5AA

Feminist comedian Sarah Cassidy presents her third full-length stand-up show to a room full of friends and strangers. The show is about love primarily, but also it’s about dinosaurs. This is a challenge; Sarah will be the first person ever to combine gender politics and paleontology in a comedy format. Expect ill-placed jokes about ancient reptiles intentionally crowbarred into an otherwise touching and honest show about relationships.
