Faetopia imagines a world in which queer people are honored and respected for their unique gifts and perspectives, from childbirth to grave by the entirety of the culture. While we appreciate the efforts of the mainstream LGBT movement, we believe that our ultimate goal is for everyone to understand that queers are a natural variation of the human experience; that we have always existed and even sometimes been celebrated; that our unique perspectives as queers are an immense gift to a community.
For the week before San Francisco Pride, over 50 artists and collaborators will create a visionary space for the gay community in the long vacant Tower Records, next to Cafe Flore at Market St & Noe St (2286 Market St, to be exact). During the day, Faetopia will host workshops, meditations, teach-ins and heart circles. At night, the arts reign supreme with theater, burlesque, queer cinema, sexy book releases and, of course, plenty of drag.
