The F Word rebroadcasts speaks from our January 2015 show in solidarity with Black Lives Matter. The popular #Blacklivesmatter hashtag was started by three Black queer women, Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors and Opal Tometi. We want to name their work as it is not often acknowledged or known, and we wish to honour the important work of black queer women in resisting white supremacy and police violence against people of colour. Anti-racism IS a feminist issue.
The F Word airs a compilation of clips from various women comedians. The comedy covers a range of topics including race, culture, sexuality, and gender. Given that the comedy industry is primarily dominated by white men it is often the case that a lot of the jokes are designed for a white male audience. Our goal with this show is to present comedy that can be funny for everyone. We also know that humour and laughter are a form of self care that has the potential to keep us vibrant in our activist work.
