Love Under the Patriarchy is a collaborative project by Renee Sharpe and Justseeds member, Christeen Francis. The project started as a series of informal conversations between Renee and a guest, usually a friend or community member, touching on vulnerability, attachment styles, mental health and wellness, boundaries, sex drives, and trauma cuz we gotta keep this real. Mostly these conversations are a way to learn from each other by sharing personal experiences, about how we find love under systems of oppression, and what that looks like in interpersonal relationships. With the goal to continue building safer, loving, and accountable communities, we look at ways we can love and support each other, so we can collectively defeat the capitalist, colonial, racist, homophobic, ableist, patriarchy once and for all!!
The Zine is a collection of writing and artwork by artists and writers in the specific ways they relate to love under the patriarchy. We are hoping to do another one soon, so if you are interested please get in touch. We’ll have some print copies soon but in the meantime check it out online at:
