BLACK WEIRDO BEGINNINGS

Hi! We are Catherine Harris - White and Stasia Irons, you may know us as musical duo THEESatisfaction. For the past 3 years we have traveled the world sharing our gift of music. We are currently finishing up our 2nd album and we are impatiently waiting for you to hear it. We come to you in this manner, not as THEESatisfaction but as independent community organizers through Black Weirdo. 

Black Weirdo got it's start in 2009 as the name of our blog. On our page we would share our favorite musicians, visual artist, photographers, dancers, writers of the African diaspora. We took the name Black Weirdo and branded T-shirts & Buttons. We were able to give buttons to some of our favorite artists: Erykah Badu, Flying Lotus, Slash, Earl Sweatshirt, Syd tha Kyd, Donald Glover & Eric Andre. With the popularity of the blog and people identifying with the term "Black Weirdo" we decided to bring it to life. 

We curated our first Black Weirdo party in Brooklyn summer of 2012. It was a huge success with over 400 people in attendance. From there we've hosted twice more in Brooklyn, Seattle, Toronto and Oakland. The parties showcase DJ's that are willing to step out of the top 40 boundary, and underground musicians who deserve to be brought to light. The Black Weirdo Party is a dance haven for the black queer community and allies. We provide not only a safe environment but an experience of warmth and comfort that you just don't get when you go out to nightclubs and bars. 

Word of the Black Weirdo party has traveled through testimony. We've received demands from fans, friends and family who would like to bring this kind of vibration to their city. 

WITH YOUR HELP

We would like to raise $25,000 to bring the Black Weirdo Party to another level in 2014. With these funds we can cover the costs of:

  • Venue and Staffing Fees
  • Advertising and Marketing
  • Travel and Accommodations
  • DJ and Performance Fees
  • Merchandise and Branding

Of course your generous donations come with cool perks like:

  • Black Weirdo VIP for you and 3 friends
  • Black Weirdo T-Shirts, Buttons and Stickers
  • THEESatisfaction Mixtape Discography
  • A Black Weirdo digital compilation CD featuring past performers
  • A Black Weirdo Party in the city of your choice

WHY SUPPORT BLACK WEIRDO?

It's not difficult to see the discrimination that still exists in all of our surroundings. When we go to work, when we are in our classrooms, when we go out for coffee and even in our own homes we feel isolated. Black Weirdo is a place where we can truly be free and accepted. In a couple of hours we can dance, sway, and groove to release a life's worth of stress. At Black Weirdo we meet at our souls and develop long lasting connections. Black Weirdo is an affirmation of belonging, and we hope to bring this feeling to everyone. 

NO MONEY, NO PROBLEM!

We know that not everyone is able to give monetarily. We appreciate your offerings in the form of spreading the word, providing resources, or volunteering time at a Black Weirdo event. Anything that you can do to help would only bring warmth and success.

Thank you so very much for taking the time to support Black Weirdo.

With true love,

Catherine and Stasia
