CHEW DISCO
Chew Disco is a queerfeminist DIY art-activism project and club night based in Liverpool and Manchester.

Hailed as “Liverpool’s best alternative night” by Attitude Magazine and recently described as “I don’t get what’s happening” by several patrons on a hen do, Chew Disco’s flagship club night blends live music, DJs, video and performance art, queerfeminist politics, and adult fun, providing a stage for queer and DIY artists from around the world. Previous guests and collaborators include Vaginal Davis (she said this: http://blog.vaginaldavis.com/2013_11_10_archive.html#233144209846985334), Mykki Blanco, Trash Kit, Queer’d Science, Cheryl, Sister Mantos, Islington Mill, and Homotopia.

Proceeds from their nights and houseparties are given to charities and advocacy organisations working for women and LGBTQs in the non-West.

Its co-founders (Khalil, from Jersey City, and Emma, from Liverpool) like to DJ and once proclaimed themselves “totally the black and mixed-race Cher and Dion of the northwest.”

They are not.

Cash raised for killer Mo. cop now surpasses Michael Brown donationsAugust 24, 2014
Online fundraisers for Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson surpassed the amount of money raised for Michael Brown’s family as the officer’s supporters gathered at an afternoon rally Saturday.
Supporters of Wilson, the police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., came toBarney’s Sports Pub in south St. Louis.
"Many of us have received death threats toward ourselves and our families," said one speaker, wearing sunglasses, paint beneath her eyes and a baseball cap. "We will not hide. We will no longer live in fear … If you support Darren Wilson, make your voices heard."
She refused to give the media her name, saying “You want my name? I am Darren Wilson. We are Darren Wilson.
The media has shown a strong bias against Wilson supporters, the speaker said, drawing loud applause from the crowd.
"We share the united belief that officer Wilson’s actions on Aug. 9 were warranted and justified and he has our unwavering support," the woman said.
A crowd-funding page created for Wilson raised $235,010 from 5,902 people before organizers stopped accepting donations Friday after surpassing their goal of $100,000 in four days. The group then opened a new fundraising page, which already has more than $104,000.
This amount surpasses the more than $214,000 raised in support of the Michael Brown Memorial Fund. According to the page, which was set up by Brown family lawyer Benjamin Crump, “the funds will assist his family with costs that they will acquire as they seek justice on Michael’s behalf.”
The Support Darren Wilson group, which has more than 58,000 likes on Facebook, encouraged supporters who could not attend the rally to “blow up some Twitter accounts” with photos of supporters and the hashtag #‎iamdarrenwilson.

Everyone I Have Ever Slept With 1963-1995 - Tracey Emin 

Everyone I Have Ever Slept With was a tent appliquéd with 102 names of the people she had slept with up to the time of its creation in 1995. The title is often misinterpreted as a euphemism indicating sexual partners and the work termed “a list of all the people that Emin has ever had sex with”, but is in fact intended more inclusively:
“Some I’d had a shag with in bed or against a wall some I had just slept with, like my grandma. I used to lay in her bed and hold her hand. We used to listen to the radio together and nod off to sleep. You don’t do that with someone you don’t love and don’t care about.”
The names include family, friends, drinking partners, lovers and even two numbered foetuses. The name of former boyfriend, Billy Childish, could be seen prominently through the tent opening. The tent was square and coloured blue; its shape was reminiscent of the Margate Shell Grotto, with which Emin was very familiar from childhood; inside on the floor of the tent was the text, "With myself, always myself, never forgetting"
