BAD AND NASTY (Bad Hombres & Nasty Women)

Bad and Nasty is a loose knit coalition of artists, activists, media makers, theater folk, web geeks, designers, performers, writers, concerned citizens, and [whatever YOU may be that is not in the list above] around the world committed to mobilizing our ongoing resistance and channeling our anger into art and activism.

We recently sponsored Not My President’s Day, a series of  64 DIY performance events held around the US as well as in the UK, Italy, and the Czech Republic on February 20, 2017. Our resistance took many forms: sign storms, cabarets, public readings of the Constitution and the 19th Amendment, music concerts, drag performances, staged readings, plays, dance concerts, sloughing, rallies, town halls – the list goes on. Check out our Event Map for the full picture of the range and scope of our gatherings. View our continually updated Event Archives for a retrospective look at just some of February’s amazing events.

Our February, 2017 events were so successful, in fact, that Bad and Nasty will continue to support acts of resistance in a multitude of ways. Watch this space for details about upcoming actions on 6/14/17, Flag Day in the US.

She called all “Bad Hombres and Nasty Women” to revolt on President’s Day, which she would rebrand as “Not My President’s Day.” Within minutes, people started liking her post and saying they wanted [Read More...]
