We the People of Philadelphia, in order to form a more perfect community, do ordain and establish this the constitution of Phreak N Queer Arts & Music Festival!
Article I Section 1: We believe in the inherently political nature of art, music and performance as powerful social and cultural change agents.
Section 2: We believe in the strength and resiliency of queer, transgender and ally communities and aim to highlight the efforts of these artists.
Section 3: We believe in paying homage to the fierce history and legacy that Philadelphia queer and transgender pioneers forged so that we could organize proudly today.
Section 4: We believe in showcasing the voices of underground, marginalized, oppressed and radical artists as a way to challenge ideas, politics and boundaries and open up communication where differences and silence previously existed.
Article II Section 1: Phreak N Queer is a product of many identities, experiences and communities. We believe in the beauty that lies within intersecting identities and strongly encourages dialogue, cooperation and community building/bridging using art and music as a channel for communication.
Section 2: Phreak N Queer operates under the DIY/indie initiative and will work to create spaces free from alienation and ostracism and will highlight queer and transgender artists with messages relevant to our mission and community.
Section 3: Phreak N Queer is volunteer run and all profits from events will go directly to performing artists and supporting the festival.
