Description

In the heart of every athlete beats a cadence of drive—the flame of aspiration.  Now, they gather together to ignite that fire and blaze past human boundaries in the great spirit of competition!  But don’t mention the flame stuff to the fire marshal…

 

INTRODUCING THE BLOWWLYMPIC GAMES! Join BLOWW on Saturday, 6/29 as we gather to celebrate 20 years of vaguely friendly competition between state-mandated smoke breaks. Marvel at the might of queer determination as competitors around the block compete in gold in the disciplines of inclusivity self-worth and….pro wrestling? Sure, why not!?

Joining the team will be drag performances, sporty vendors, BLOWWLUMNI, and dazzling feats of strength by our friends at New England Black Circus!

Doors at 6 pm, bell at 7 pm at The Arts at the Armory in Somerville, MA.

BLOWW is a radical response to the mainstream world of pro-wrestling. We are a feminist, grassroots organization, where women, non-binary, trans, and questioning peoples can express ourselves, and work together to create an unforgettable spectacle we can all get behind. We are not here for the male gaze, and reject the misogyny, racism, and homophobia rampant in mainstream representations of the art form. We have ownership over our own bodies, you won’t see us as ornaments or valets in our universe. We accept people of all colors, ability, expression, experience, strength, and size into our ring. We use this ring to explore issues of power, stereotypes, discrimination, health, and rights. We love to kick each other's asses, as much as we love keeping each other lifted up and supported. We want to inspire you by showing you our strength, gusto, and heart. And we always punch up.
