Burning Man's All-Women Camp Fundraising for Desert Dome

If you're going to be out on the dusty plains of Black Rock you definitely need some shelter. And you may also want some privacy -- especially if you're at a strap-on-a-thon workshop.

The Beavers (yes, you're on the right path) are raising funds for a new dome for the only all women (trans inclusive) Burning Man camp: Camp Beaverton. They are also the hosts of the seven-years-and-running strap-on-a-thon workshop, as well as offer other Burning Man LGBTQA events. What is a strap-on-a-thon you ask? It's a workshop for all women to learn how to use a strap on of course!

Many of the Beavers are based in the Bay Area, and will be making the trek out to the Playa in August, hopefully with a new tent. But here's the catch, those domes don't come cheap, and at $30k they have a lot of fundraising to do. But if you're the type to want to check out the strap-a-thon -- in between dancing and hula-hooping on the desert plains -- then you may want to consider donating towards the tent.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
