“Airplane Mode – a space for us all to disconnect from our phones and dive deep into the healing power of music and dance.We are all longing for that tribal connection that human beings are desperately missing in this new era of technology and separate togetherness. Airplane Mode is a series of events focused on ridding ourselves of external chains and getting down with the tribe vibes, allowing the music and the spirit of your fellow brothers and sisters to fill your soul, free your mind, and move your body. A night to stop worrying about what other people are doing and be present. No more experiencing an event through the lens of your phone. Let us instead fully enjoy the moment.”

If you hadn’t heard already…
A fabulous fundraiser “Femme & Them” was put together by our very own staff, Nara, and another beautiful soul Mimi. Packed and full of support, the event was off the chain last night!
Hosted at the Roots & branches Pop-Up Shop at ELL San Francisco with support from Nick Basta, this event featured various wonderful dj’s, beatmakers, rappers, performers and a handful of local artists!
Proceeds were directed to TGI Justice Project, an organization that supports current and former incarcerated trans womxn. Check out their site for more info: http://www.tgijp.org/
A lot of hard work and care went into it all, so we just wanted to shout-out all the gals and artists who took part and made it a great success for the community!
