Oscar Wilde's Pink Lemonade Stand

Fresh City Life will be celebrating Denver PrideFest this Saturday with a lemonade stand and button making station on Acoma Plaza. This will be our second annual stint hosting a refreshment stand in the name of one of the greatest GLBT authors in history -- Oscar Wilde. During a promotional tour in 1882, Oscar actually came to Denver and lectured at the opera house here and in Leadville. He stayed as the guest of Horace Tabor and was well-received by most of Denver's citizens.

Zines, Glorious Zines!

Assorted zines

Zines are a great way to express yourself--you write/draw/collage/create whatever your heart desires, make copies, and distribute them wherever you want. They’re a part of a rich history of self-publication, from Thomas Paine’s “Common Sense” to Sci-Fi fanzines to punk and feminist (and so much more!) zines that capture the DIY spirit. Long before blogs, zines were an excellent way to give voice to marginalized people and create communities--and they still are!
