Queer Babes of Gaynesville Calendar Casting Call

Published Robbie - Thu, 02/27/2014 - 4:30pm

From the Very Queer Variety Show organizers:

Babes of Gaynesville: We want to photograph you!

Here's the details:
We want a very fabulous Very Queer Variety Show this year, right?! Then we need funds for the development of said fabulousness. Like good Gayensvillains we're looking to cultivate our local resources. In Gaynesville we happen to have an abundance of Babes. Our research has shown the best way to sustainably harvest babes is via photographic duplication. The Babe duplicates are easily distributed in the form of full color calendars which can be enjoyed for an entire year! The theme of our calendar will follow suit with that of this year's Very Queer Variety Show: Time Flux! Check out that event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1376350355958849/

This calendar will include powerful & inspiring facts, quotes, ideas and of course Babes in a healthy, sexy, informative spirit supporting the empowerment of our LGBTQ community and the advancement of humans rights!

Wanna be a model?! We're looking for Babes of all shapes, sizes, shades and identities. Come with your ideas of a time period, costuming, message, and/or personal expression that you see yourself embodying! OR just come as your beautiful self, open to our ideas! We will be taking 3-5 pictures of each potential model at the casting call, so if you have a costume concept already, bring it! If you are unavailable on the date of the casting call plz send your ideas and a few "model-y" snapshots of yourself (we wanna see your camera face) to gaynesville.babes@gmail.com BY MARCH 6th! The model line up will be announced Monday March 10th, all models chosen will work with our photographer and set crew to schedule their photo-shoot sometime during the month of March.

This project is all about self-expression, self-exploration, and self-education, and your involvement should ring true to YOU, the beautiful queers of Gaynesville! That said, cultural appropriation is a very real thing. When reaching back into history and extracting the exciting bits, make sure you are extracting the exciting bits of YOUR culture, not that of someone else, and certainly not that of any oppressed or minority culture (IE: do not come dressed in a Native American headdress unless you are Native American, do not show up dressed as a Samurai unless you are of Japanese decent).

We need at least 12 models to fill a whole year, groups with a shared vision are encouraged to attend together. Models will be chosen based on their vision, enthusiasm, and relevance to the overarching theme. Attention will be given to representing a broad cross-section of our vibrant and dynamic community.

PARTICIPANTS MUST BE AT LEAST 18 YEARS OF AGE.
