This ride is open to all womyn, womyn identified, gender-non-conforming, queer, trans, two-spirited folx only!

> > We do recognize that the name Clitoral Mass does refer to cis-womyn’s reproductive system. However, it is not meant to exclude anyone. The name is a play on words intended to be playful and simultaneously create some sort of acknowledgement/acceptance/pride in one’s historically oppressed body. While this is a frequent motif of ours, we do not make apologies for using fem-posi symbolism and do so to reaffirm and reclaim our bodies and do not in any way do it with the intention to marginalize the many forms and genders that constitute “woman.” We prescribe to a decolonized/WOC feminist interpretation of womynhood, which includes womyn and womyn-identified folks, or two-spirited/queer/trans folks. Long story short, ALL WOMYN-IDENTIFIED FOLX no matter what reproductive organs you have or do not have are welcome on this ride!< <

About the Film:

In a fast-paced immigrant community where dreams are often lost to economic survival, two young Chicanas contemplate life when they stir unexpected desires in each other. Mosquita y Mari is a coming of age story that focuses on a tender friendship between two young Chicanas. Yolanda and Mari are growing up in Huntington Park, Los Angeles and have only known loyalty to one thing: family. Growing up in immigrant households, both girls are expected to prioritize the well-being of their families. Yolanda, an only child, delivers straight A’s and the hope of the American Dream while Mari, the eldest, shares economic responsibilities with her undocumented family who scrambles to make ends meet.
