An informal history of Come in Peace, by ginoushka, yr humble moderator, 03/10/09:
Come in Peace was a collective of anti-war and sex-positive activists based in the Pioneer Valley, MA. We started in the spring of 2003. We wanted to create anti-war and sex-positive art pieces to benefit peace organizations around the world. We took some amazingly hot and smart photos. We talked about making the photos into a calendar, posters, and playing cards; selling them the entire world over; and giving the profits to groovy organizations we heart(ed). Then -- we all got tired, really busy, and transient. A bunch of us started or finished school, and a bunch of us moved out of the Pioneer Valley.
The photos we took are still hot, and still meaningful, and still relevant. We've shown some of them at galleries and art shows in San Francisco, and there's been discussion of resurrecting the website and making an online store. We hella busy, though.
Other stuff: While comeinpeace is a collective of folks who know each other, other interested peaceniks and porn-lovers are welcome to join this livejournal community to watch our progress.
Oh, and: Racist, classist, sexist, homophobic, fatphobic, transphobic, otherwise bigoted speech, and general asshattery will not be tolerated here. Think before you type, yo.
