OOOF! What a TIME to be alive! I'm GRATEFUL to be alive to witness a strong eloquent black woman so powerfully SLAY a white supremacist homophobic transphobic misogynist! Below is information on VOTING (voting early and mail-in ballots and PHONE BANKING! A Vote for Biden and Harris is a vote for SANITY!!)


In the meantime, wearing masks is a way of life to protect ourselves and others from Covid-19! So natrually I've incorporated masks into a part of Year in Rainbow! , if you sign up for my Patreon (Yellow tiers and above) TODAY ONLY (BEFORE 11pm EST), you get a FREE FACE MASK from the RED MONTH with amazing Luma Rouge art on it!!


In addition to a FREE MASK you get to see NEW WORK ! YES! I made a Mockumentary about menstrual slime healing, the series is called Chakramentory and it's THE FIRST of minimum 6 episodes (I may make other experimental videos throughout the year!) Basically each month I'm making a BRAND NEW color based Experimental Video!!


These masks are 100 percent cotton, adjustable, reversible, come with a filter and filter pocket and are HAND MADE by YOURS TRULY! If you sign up for one of the tiers that already has a mask, you will get a RAINBOW MASK in ADDITION to the mask. Here are 4 masks I made first come first serve, go DIRECTLY TO www.yearinrainbow.com because my Patreon is labeled "adult" so unfortunately you can't search me out!







ARE YOU REGISTERED TO VOTE?

THE WORLD-we have a horror show of a president! Our people are dying on the daily because of white supremacy and the failure that is capitalism. PLEASE VOTE, we need to douche OUT the oval office of some MAJOR EXCREMENT! This whole paragraph is a link to check if you are registered to vote!

Once you do THAT then you can head on over to see when to VOTE EARLY at THIS LINK https://www.vote.org/early-voting-calendar/


VOLUNTEER FOR BIDEN/HARRIS

PHONE BANKING WORKS!! I've done it, and so are lots of my friends! VOLUNTEER to call folks in swing states! It will probably be registered Democrats so it's not a hard sell, you just make sure that folks are voting and ask them if they want to volunteer, it's easy and FUN!!


It's HAPPENING!


YEAR IN RAINBOW BEGINS TODAY, TUESDAY SEPTEMBER FIRST! Check it all out over at www.YearinRainbow.com ! It's been almost 6 months since I've hit the stage, and in an effort to give myself some artistic work, I'm re-launching an Art as Life project that I did in 2007 with the same title and the same concept (apart from the live performance aspect!)


THE WORLD-we have a horror show of a president! Our people are dying on the daily because of white supremacy and the failure that is capitalism. PLEASE VOTE, we need to douche OUT the oval office of some MAJOR EXCREMENT! This whole paragraph is a link on voting information (and how to VOTE EARLY) for New York.


As you know most performing artists in the world have lost their jobs (there are a few countries that care about their citizens and are opening up theaters again, but this country, oy vey!) Anyway I'm out of a job and always do best when I work for myself so Year in Rainbow is happening over on my Patreon!


There are a TON of awesome exclusives, involving color based workshops, daily videos, video of past performances (One Woman Rainbow and Untitled Rainbow Project), one of a kind color coordinated face masks and BRAND NEW experimental videos!! Here's a description of the project! I hope you will join me on this journey!


WHAT IS YEAR IN RAINBOW?

Darlinda Just Darlinda presents A YEAR IN RAINBOW September 1, 2020- August 31, 2021 inspired by Linda M. Montano's 14 Years of Living Art, via Morty Diamond's Year in Pink.

A YEAR IN RAINBOW is Darlinda's 3rd foray into the "living art" milieu, August 2007- July 2008 she did Year in Rainbow, September 2009- November 2010 she did Year in Dance.


For 12 months Darlinda will conduct an artistic exploration of color, researching how it feels/ how the world reacts  to wear one color, documenting that experience and creating an experimental video and class with her findings on each color. These findings will also inform and create content her live performance works (Untitled Rainbow Project and One Woman Rainbow when the stage safely available
