So who comes to Grease Rag? You’ve put your fear in your pocket for the night--who should you expect to meet the first time you come to Grease Rag?
We are an eclectic group of women/trans/femme (WTF) bicycle enthusiasts. We don’t go in for boxes or labels, but maybe a list of descriptive words, in alphabetical and reverse alphabetical order, will show you who we are, and that there is space for you to join us. These came from an informal survey of some of the Grease Rag'ers I've seen recently. Think of them as removable, changeable, interchangeable, erasable, self-edited labels. Please mix and match and add some words so we can describe you too.
We have so many things in common and so many differences. We believe in the inherent strength of WTFs and our ability to learn new things, celebrate our bike-powering bodies, and build an awesome community of empowered cycling friends.
On to the lists!
Pastimes and professions (nouns and gerunds)
Music we like
The Grease Rag Menagerie
(do houseplants count?)
Places we ride and types of riding we do
exploring for fun
I see a lot of words that are missing. Any firefighters? Lizard owners? Who like jazz? Does anyone out there ride a handcycle or a tandem?
It’s Grease Rag. We’re an awesome, queer-friendly, safer space and we’re waiting for you to join us. We don’t actually need the labels. We just are who we are.
