“TOUCH THIS SKIN DARLING, TOUCH ALL OF THIS SKIN! YOU JUST CAN’T TAKE IT!”
One moment you’re dancing, the next a drag queen is performing! Suddenly there is a vogue performance going on?! MY NECK, MY BACK is a celebration of queerness and brownness, where the performances melt together with the dancefloor! Pride week just got a whole lotta better with our sweaty night of fierce queens, kings and everything in between.
Evening hosted by Helsinki’s least known drag queen, Anna Konda!

Ruskeat Tytöt (=Brown* Girls**) ry is an institutionally nonaligned, politically and religiously independent, non-profit organization for Brown People by Brown People. The objective of all of our activities is to broaden representations in the field of culture – especially media, literature and communications –, normalize the stories told about us, and to function as a platform for cultural professionals of color to realize their projects. Ruskeat Tytöt is also for allies.
*By brown people we mean all people who are being racialized in the Finnish context. This means people who are viewed here as non-white and/or non-Finnish eg. the Sami, the Roma and people of African, Arab, Asian descent, who are considered brown or people of colour. Also Russian and Estonian people are often racialized in Finland.
**By girls we refer to all genders except the normative "male", also people outside the gender binary.
