Free bleeding is exactly what it sounds like, going through menstruation in the most natural way possible; no pads, no tampons, no cups… no blocking or collecting the period flow. The reasons people choose to free bleed can range from comfort to environmental concerns to simply not having a choice.
GBX Online Presents: Artists + Activists is a series of interviews with New Orleans based womxn. The womxn working towards a more just and equitable future as artists, makers, and entrepreneurs or as activists, leaders, and non-profit workers. Our first in this series is an interview with STAR (Sexual Trauma Awareness + Response) Advocacy Director Alix Tarnowsky. STAR is one of Glitter Box's community partners. We donate 5% of all sales to STAR and other non-profits seeking to promote the education and empowerment of womxn in New Orleans and beyond (thanks in part to the generosity of the Heymann Foundation).
