Rad Post-Teen Print of the Week 32: Free Pussy Riot!!!

June 27, 2012

Couldn’t resist posting this radical patch by Lauren Jurysta, a former teen of mine super active in Pittsburgh queer/dyke community. Lauren co-organized this year’s Dyke/Trans March as well as Rhinestone Steel, an all-day queer music festival this past weekend, featuring Katey Red, Silky Shoemaker, Nicky Click, and many more amazing queer performers. I picked up this patch there. Lauren was in the riot grrrl influenced teen punk band Smells Like Gina, an active participant in Warhol teen programs such as The F Word and TTYL (Totally Teens Youth Lounge), and is currently in Slag Womb. Now in her mid-20’s (no longer even a post-teen really!), she does a lot in Pittsburgh to bring people together and create community.
Pussy Riot, in case you haven’t heard, is a feminist punk band from Russia who have been arrested for their punk anti-Putin prayer at Moscow’s Christ the Savior cathedral. For more info on Pussy Riot, check here:
