Fierce and Fabulous Krew
Two interviews (on CD) from Guelph's Fierce and Fabulous Krew.
"Pink & Black Prisons" is an interview with Jason Lydon, who writes and maintains the website www.blackandpink.org. Black and Pink focuses on providing support to Queer and Trans prisoners in the United States, as well as, maintaining a monthly newsletter, a blog and an online store, www.blackandpinkart.org, which sells Queer and Trans prisoners artwork to folks on the outside. Jason spoke on the eve of Prisoner Justice Day about what Black and Pink does to support Queer and Trans prisoners, issues they face inside the prison walls and what queer resistance to the Prison Industrial Complex looks like today and in the future.
