A tide has begun to move in Berlin. Earlier in the day in 2010, the scheduling agency and celebration show Mint ceased its tasks as a scheduling agency and group of events, workshops and events dedicated to promoting female-identifying designers.

Regardless of the capital’s that is german as you of the finest clubbing cities on the planet, does it offer an aggressive weather for lesbian events? How come homosexual events effectively attract hordes while the ones that focus on female-identified and aims that are feminist to struggle more?

Meanwhile, a crop of queer-identified events has brought root in a clubbing landscape that’s traditionally been dominated by gay-male clubs and events.

With Mint we had been wanting to create a community for ladies, a platform for females to do, do workshops and motivate one another.
