Every hump day, a Philly woman shares her local picks for Woman Crush Wednesday. Today, Philly filmmaker and photographer Kelly A. Burkhardt.
My name is Kelly A. Burkhardt, and here are my picks for Woman Crush Wedneday. I made my choices with a particular focus on local artists and activists.
Hands down one of my favorite filmmakers (Bumming Cigarettes) and visual artists. Period. She also promotes and helps distribute other artists' works through her company Harriet’s Gun Media, which focuses on dissecting race, gender and sexuality. So basically when I grow up, I want to be just like Tiona M.
Philly Dyke March readies for its annual march with a good old-fashioned craft night and sign-making party. Expect drink, snacks, and some of the liveliest conversation you're likely to find on a Wednesday night in Philly. Wednesday, June 4th, 6 p.m., William Way Community Center, 1315 Spruce Street.
The first time I saw Luna perform I was completely mesmerized. She is like the illegitimate love child of Courtney Love and Candy Darling. She pours her wickedly talented soul into every performance, and can be seen regularly playing with gender and covered in glitter as a member of Liberty City Kings and performers with the Factory Girls.
With a distinctly beautiful visual style, Tara is rapidly becoming one of the most sought after wedding photographers in Philly. Her company, Tara Beth Photography, was recently featured on equallywed.com. Besides flirting with national attention, Tara is an absolute sweetheart who lends her gifted talents to creating positive imagery of our queer community.
