On the 18th July, 2009, the on-line femslash community is set to celebrate the second annual International Day of Femslash; an opportunity to raise its head high and proclaim to the world its delight in all things femslash. So, whether you're a seasoned writer, with hordes of ardent fans, or a timid newcomer, you have the chance to make your voice heard and help put femslash well and truly on the map.
Simply post your stories, videos, graphics, essays, poems or other femslash related works to an archive, community, group or forum on 18th July, 2009, to show your support. Where you choose to post your creative efforts is up to you; although, we do hope to gather together an extensive list of web-sites, lj communities, Yahoo Groups and forums which support our efforts, but feel free to post widely to wherever femslash is welcome.
For too many years, femslash has been treated as the distant cousin to the het and slash king and queen of fandom, so this is our opportunity to demonstrate to ourselves, as much as anyone else, that we are a force to be reckoned with.
"I'm your Man" was my contribution to last years event. I'm not sure if I'll be participating this time round (depends on other deadlines) but hope to see everyone else celebrating!
Also, please, please pimp the event. You can use one of the nifty banners from the femslashday website or you can use the one I made above. :)
