THANKS TO ALL THE LOVELY WOMYN & WOMYN ID’d FOLKS WHO HELPED MAKE LA’S FIRST CLITORAL MASS A TODO DAR!
More than 250 womyn took the streets on their bicis, guided by ladies in reflective vests and the outline of, of course, the beautiful moon goddess coyolxauhqui dressed in blue, on August 31st for LA’s first Clitoral Mass!
The ride came after months of preparation by the Clitoral Mass committee which consisted of Ovarian Psycos core collective members, our sisters over at the Iron Unicorns and many other womyn/womyn id’d cyclists and all around psycos! Womyn in the CMC coordinated safety, “caracol” traffic control, pit stops that included a drum circle in Leimert Park and snacks at La Mina in City Terrace, an after-party celebrating OPCB’s 2 year anniversary and much more!
Riders met up at LA’s state historic park on Friday Aug. 31st–no, not making line for FYF– but to ride in LA”s first ever Clitoral Mass ride. Elsewhere, Critical Mass may have drawn nearly 2,000+ riders, but Clitoral Mass made historic strides that will leave skid marks in LA’s history forever.
