c.l.i.t.fest is a (trans* and cis) women centered, DIY feminist festival which is open to people of all genders. Its about getting different minority groups and our allies together and understanding each others stuff, so we can work together, play together, and support each other. We will be having a variety of panel discussions, some presentations and workshops, as well as a huge gig with some hella rad bands and DJs on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd of June 2013 in The Wellington CBD/Te Aro, Aotearoa.
We are against gendered discrimination, against misogyny, against racism and against all oppressions. We are here to Combat Latent Inequalities Together!!!!

The robust korero, personal experiences and willingness to share our vulnerabilities as well as our strengths is what makes a hui eh, so thank you all heaps for being so fucking awesome.
