About the Pink Bloque:
The Pink Bloque was a multi-issue, multi-outfit radical feminist street dance troupe who used popular culture and dance as a protest tactic from 2002-2004. We used semi-choreographed hip-hop dance moves, new media technologies, and pop culture references to make protesting a real political party. We employed tight pants and tight political analysis to brush off the haters and give props to the lovers. Now in a reflective mode, the Pink Bloque wants to share what we learned and inspire others from our experience.
