Golden Probe Awards Watch Party!
October 28, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 11:30 pm$10
With midterm elections looming, we invite you to join us to celebrate intersectional feminism, reproductive health & justice in Baltimore & highlight anti-choice extremism to help mobilize us into action!
Baltimore Doula Project is excited to host a live stream watch party for The 2018 Golden Probes, a satirical award show hosted by advocacy org LPJL* that brings comedians, actors, health care providers, activists, and more together to “award” and call attention to the most absurd and extremist efforts to control our reproductive futures and stall progress towards reproductive and social justice.
This event will feature guest speakers, local repro justice orgs, games & prizes, and drink specials. Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door. Wear your formal wear or favorite feminist tee shirt, and bring a friend!
All ticket sales will benefit Baltimore Doula Project’s free and low-cost full spectrum doula care for pregnant people seeking an abortion, experiencing pregnancy loss, or giving birth in the Baltimore area.
** Lady Parts Justice League’s name denotes a cisnormative understanding by conflating “parts” with gender, something they have addressed on their website. They tell the story of how the name LPJL came to be, and how it aligns with their mission of calling attention to the hypocrisy of the anti-choice movement: “The Michigan Speaker of the House banned [a repro justice advocate] from the statehouse floor for using the word vagina when arguing against a transvaginal ultrasound bill- a bill that would have forced pregnant people to undergo a state mandated transvaginal probe before they could have an abortion. When she asked what she SHOULD use instead of vagina, the Speaker of the House suggested something less offensive like “lady parts.”” Both LPJL and BDP understand that not all people with a uterus identify as women, and we support the reproductive rights of people of all gender identifications.
