Michfest Music Melodrama

I really have no desire to go to the transphobic Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival. I don’t really care to protest the event (with Camp Trans). If the Klan wanted to have a meeting out in the midde of nowhere, I’d let em. But the one thing DOES bother me about Michfest are the performers. Artists like Alix Olson, Melissa Ferrick, and Ferron are playing at an event that actively excludes transwomen. I keep thinking, should I refuse to go to any further shows or buy their albums? Is it anathema to support any of these artists?

🙁 I really do love Ferron.

Some music under the cut…
