NASTY WOMEN PORTRAITS PRESENTS ROSIE
ROSIE is our next casual-cool party with professional-quality photo opps and socially empowering installations, that raises money for causes we care about. At ROSIE ALL ticket and donation-based bar proceeds go toward LA’s LGBT Center’s TEEP program (more info here) and future NWP programming.
At ROSIE, we invite guests of all gender identities to see themselves in the image of one of our most iconic feminist symbols: Rosie the Riveter. We will highlight the history of Rosie and focus on womxn coming together to do what’s needed, and translate that power and activism into our everyday lives in 2018 and beyond.
8 Reasons to Attend ROSIE:
1: Because every morning before leaving for work you look into the mirror, flex your right bicep and say “We Can Do This!”
2: Because you paid $50 for the “Museum” of Ice Cream and that photo opp didn’t benefit shit.
3: Because you could use a Friday night spot to meet your friends, take a few photos and wet your whistle before going out and turning up.
4: Because you could use a Friday night spot to meet your friends, take a few photos, ghost them and be in bed with your fur baby by 11.
5: Because you’ve read about the LA LGBT Center’s TEEP program and passionately support their mission and understand the importance of showing up for causes you believe in.
6: Because one of your friends is involved in throwing this event and you know they’ll like you a helluva lot more if you show up to it.
7: Because you’re generally curious about how the powers of experiential marketing can be harnessed for good, not just to fuel the soulless machine of consumerism.
8: Because you believe in NWP’s overall mission of empowering marginalized voices through photography and community.
Who Are we partnering with?
At this event we are so excited to be partnering with and supporting the LA LGBT Center, with a specific focus on their Trans Economic Empowerment Program (TEEP).
For nearly 50 years, the Los Angeles LGBT Center has championed and provided more care for LGBT individuals and families than any other organization in the world. TEEP forwards that mission through a wide range of services crafted to ensure our transgender community members find employment in safe environments as well as training and inspiring workplaces to put inclusivity and cultural competency into everyday practice.
A portion of all proceeds made at ROSIE will go directly to the LA LGBT Center to ensure that they can continue their work for another 50 years.
