Transcript /£ "ROOTYI Of Our Owx) It all started with "A Room of Our Own," hosted by Susan Wood, at Westercon XXX in Vancouver. We are pleased to confirm the rumor that we steal only from the best and wish to acknowledge a' debt of gratitude to Susan. The original Room of Our Own started out as a "hideout" for women feeling oppressed; it broadened its purposes as soon as it opened: many others felt the need to be free of hassle —particularly the gays, but also a number of straights who simply wanted to talk in a framework of equality. Iggy's A Place of Our Own will probably follow the same, informal pattern of evolution. Most simply put, A Place of Our Own is a room where women can get away from the myth of the Hen Session —a place where women, gays, and even straights don't need to be defensive about anyone's right to be a human being among equal human beings. More broadly, A Place of Our Own is an entropy bubble, a piece of the future in which discrimination doesn't exist . . . people relating to people as individual human beings. This will be an area where acrimony is left outside ajnd a sincere effort to understand other peoples' viewpoints is made. A Place of Our Own consists of two rooms, one of which is set up for a programming track dealing with topics such as alternative marital forms, speculations about non-patriarchial futures, sexism in fandom, women in fandom, etc. The second room will be set up as a lounge where discussions, either spontaneous or pre-arranged, can be held. Due to Arizona state law, no smoking will be permitted in either room. -FatKabaret The FanCabaret is something of a new idea for this convention. Noting that, traditionally, many fans like to perform—or watch other fans perform— at conventions, we decided to give them space to display their talents and gather and audience, and a genial atmosphere in which to do so. Thus was created the FanCabaret, a late-evening, informal arena for these goings-on. Beginning at 10:00 pm Friday night with Dorothy C. Fontana acting as host, the Cabaret will stay open as long as the performers, audience, and energy hold out. This will continue on Saturday night at 11:00 pm with The Mobius Theatre hosting, and again on Sunday at 10:30 on when the hosts will be Amy Sefton and Freff, with the Freff 'n Amy show. Now, about your part in all this, Binky. You see, this is a fan cabaret, and you are a fan. Get it? Got it? Good. We want you in our show. If you sing, dance, juggle, presdidigitate, or otherwise make a public spectacle of yourself, we want you there. We need you there. Quit making excuses and get up there. These people are all friends, and we can make it a Hell of a party. We'll have a lighting and sound system (much thanks for the latter to Bruce Dane) run by competent technicians. Of course, if your singing frightens the dogs and worries the neighbors, just sit in the front and hum along. How do you do this? Look for flyers at the con for specific details, but, basically, try to show up at least an hour before the evening's show, preferably as soon as the previous Phoenix Room function ends. Talk to me (Glen Blankenship) at the preceding night's show, even. That way we can get everything arranged beforehand, and work you into an appropriate place in the evening's program. And if you're not interested in performing, at least come on down and watch. The Cabaret is the only programming function except for the films scheduled for the late hours, and we'd love to have you there. What good is sitting alone in your room? Come here the music play...
