“I’m an artist in CA whose art focuses on themes of gender and sexuality (My fine art can be seen here: http://homobonobo.com/fa.html)…What I can do is offer signed prints of some of my pieces to people who donate to No on 8.
..I will offer a signed print of either of these artworks (if you search “butch lesbians” in google image search, the Lino print is the second image that pops up) to the first 80 people who donate $25 or more to No on 8 and forward me the confirmation.
You can contact Kristen at artdyke(at)gmail.com if you would like a print.”
One more thing: Someone is donating a dyke porn DVD – The Best of Good Dyke Porn. E-mail me (gracethespot[at]gmail[dot]com) your confirmation if interested.
