Queer Women in Music - Boston

Queer Women in Music - Boston QWIMB (http://quimb.org) shares the history of queer women in Boston's music scene. Follow our exploits and goings on at at www.qwimb.org
QWIMB is a non-profit organization that collects and preserves the history of the queer women's music scene in Boston. As an extension, we also plan events showcasing local artists.

QWIMB is an initiative of The History Project, which seeks to document, preserve, and share the history of Boston's GLBT community. We focus exclusively on the contributions of queer women to Boston's rich music scene - individual musicians, bands, and DJs - and seek to share an historical perspective and to keep a strong tradition going by providing a fresh outlet to current artists.

Mission: Queer Women in Music Boston seeks to document, promote, and tender-loving-care-for, the history of queer women in Boston's music scene from roughly 1970-present. This includes all queer women, trans, and non-binary folx. We preserve YOUR history. What you do matters. Help us document it for all to see and learn from!

Is there anyone going to this show with Catie Curtis on Tuesday tonight at Club Passim in Harvard Square who can take some photos for QWIMB ( if you can take photos in there) and maybe do a write up about the show and your experience there? I’m not sure I’ll be able to make this and it’s important to document her performance.

Queer Women in Music – Boston – Documenting Musical Queer Bostonians

I’m restarting this project 2020. Please follow www.qwimb.org for current status updates they may not all make Facebook. I took a long hiatus but I’m back and I have an archivist photographer to help me. Message me about you, your shows, or Queer Women in the Boston music scene I need to know about. Classical and folk are very underrepresented on my site and so are people under 30 and over 50. Please help me. If you have fliers or pins or ticket stubs please contact me so we can put them in the archive at The History Project www.thehistoryproject.org Please reach out and be persistent I’d youre using Facebook and not my gmail address listed on the website. Happy holidays, and take care of yourselves everyone. You’re following this project for a reason so please help and support me. I’m the only one of the original four women still alive and working on this. It really does matter and it really is urgent. Don’t let us be invisible, forgotten or erased. We need each other. Any woman, womyn, trans, and non binary person who feels they should be represented and included in this space, is. Tell me you’re out there. I don’t care if you play kazoo to your parrot, say hello. That’s all it takes. ❤️💪🎁

Awww, I was so happy to have just stumbled onto this page but that happiness was short lived and now I am a bit crushed to see that it seems to be a dead page. Particularly because I am a transgender woman that has not been in a band since I was a kid and now I am in one again and this would have been such a good fit. Darn it!
