QWOCMAP provides training, screening opportunities and resources free of charge to guarantee full access to our traditionally underserved community, particularly low-income and immigrant queer women of color.

QWOCMAP began in 2000, and has been training filmmakers and presenting films by queer women of color since then!

Bildwechsel (English Version) (0)


Bildwechsel is an umbrella organisation for women+ and their representation in media, culture and art.
We are a meeting point, open stage, platform and an infrastructure which women+ can tap into to share, support and develop their work/projekts/ideas – in connection with the work of others and drawing on their knowlege and experience. We have our background in the feminist critical media movement starting the 1970′s, in the field of representation and gender role science developed in the 80′s and 90′s and in the d.i.y. queer community and the women+ project scene.
We work as an art project, we develop and support events and initiatives and hold archive collections on women+/media/art. We aim to present a panoramic view of the work of women+ artists in transition. We are concerned with the concept of woman+, artist, authorship and anonymity and this interest informs the ways we work.

Bildwechsel is always looking for current film and video productions and other entries by professional amateurs and random observers to be on show in the archives and at bildwechsel activities and be shown as requested for interested festival organizers, scientists and every other person that is making an appointment.

(From Alex's Website)

“Wouldn’t it be great if there was a collection of a bunch of stuff about zines in one place so that I would stop seeing all the same mistakes?”

Then she started compiling ideas for a zine she would call: Stolen Sharpie Revolution. It was soon pointed out that she would not be able to steal as many photocopies as she would have orders for the zine.

The Rotten Fruits (0)

Since the inception of The Rotten Fruits in 2001, This Chicago based band has been steadily building a reputation as one of the more original and outlandish live bands in underground punk. With songs that like to push the envelope and make the Christian right cringe, The Rotten Fruits have proven not to be just another passing annoyance, and with a brand spankin new rhythm section pushing the tempos they are preparing to record what should be a scorcher of full length album. And in case ya hadn't heard, their Shows are notorious for their unplanned all out chaos and on stage debauchery.

They have released several songs on different compilation CD's and have their first well received 7" EP "Abomination" on Criminal IQ Records. The "Abomination" EP either has people jumping with joy, or pulling their hair out in disgust. Either way The Rotten Fruits are pleased. Besides their recorded history, TRF has toured the midwest more than a few times supporting great acts such as The Briefs, Clit 45, Two Man Advantage, Thee Trash Brats, Texas Terri Bomb, Lynne Breedlove, The Queers, The Feelers, The Functional Blackouts, The Phantom Limbs, 7 Shot Screamers, The Midnight Creeps, The Street Brats...just to name a few.

The Rotten Fruits just want to have fun. Sure there are messages to their songs, but nothing is taken that seriously, everything is very tongue in cheek. Their goal basically is to have fun, piss people off, and look good doing it. TRF are funny, queer and totally out of control!

Think Pink Radio (0)


Think Pink Radio started in September 2003 as Chicago’s only all-music radio show for the queer community on WLUW 88.7 fm.  A radio show that focuses on music made by the queer community is rare, and we were so lucky to be able to do it in such a cool city. The show went off the air in August 2008 to concentrate on an online presence.

This site is dedicated to Chicago, its queer community, and promoting happenings that are outside of the mainstream. The letter GLBTQ and DIY is the focus, and we always seek out those who love this world and want to be themselves in it.
