Ecosexual Purple Wedding

(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- Hundreds of ''ecosexual'' artists, academics, famous sex workers, and environmental activists are heading to Los Angeles for a Purple Wedding to the Moon, the brainchild of artist-brides, Annie Sprinkle and Elizabeth Stephens.

This will be their sixth large-scale, ecology inspired wedding. ''The environment has always been our creative partner, as in ‘ashes to ashes, dust to dust,’ says Elizabeth Stephens, an art professor at the University of California in Santa Cruz, whose personal roots lie in West Virginia where mountaintop removal mining runs rampant. ''In a twist on the traditional marriage vows, each of our eco-themed weddings is an invitation for people to ‘promise to love, honor, and cherish the Earth, Sky, Sea and Moon until death brings us closer together forever’.''

Annie Sprinkle, Ph.D., a porn star turned eco-sexologist emphasizes the fecundity of the earth; she links fertility and imagination. ''We aim to make the environmental movement a little more sexy, fun and diverse through art.'' Purple Wedding to the Moon will be held at Farnsworth Park’s outdoor amphitheater in Altadena, Los Angeles, on October 23rd, the night of the full moon. http://www.loveartlab.org.

Four hundred guests are expected to attend and over one hundred artists will collaborate on the creation of the wedding. The unorthodox union will be officiated by the popular performance artist Reverend Billy, accompanied by the Church of Life After Shopping Choir-- the subjects of the documentary film, What Would Jesus Buy? produced by Morgan Sperlock. Reverend Billy’s sermons and activism about the ''Shopocolypse,'' over-consumption, and corporate greed have gotten him arrested dozens of times.

Stephens, Sprinkle and Reverend Billy got upset when they learned that N.A.S.A. had bombed the moon prospecting for water. They wondered ''why can’t we just take better care of the water here on Earth?'' ''We wanted to do something,'' cried Stephens. ''So we are marrying the Moon, but it’s really also about loving the Earth.'' Last year Sprinkle and Stephens married the Sea in Italy at the Venice Biennale. They have also married the Earth in Croatia and the Sky in England. The wedding participants now number in the thousands. Reverend Billy is taking his new Earth-allujah! show on the road, premiering Oct. 21 at the Disney Theater. http://www.revbilly.com/events/cali-tour

For the honeymoon, the movers and shakers of this budding ecosexuality movement will hold the world’s first Ecosex Symposium at Highways Performance Space in Santa Monica, the day after the wedding. ''We’ll switch the metaphor from ‘Earth as mother,’ to ‘Earth as lover,’ to garner a more reciprocal relationship with our beautiful planet. We’ll explore what ecosexuality is about from many perspectives: With panels, performances and moon pies. ''All adults are welcome.'' Stephens and Sprinkle say enthusiastically. Cindy Baker and Megan Morman, two artists coming from Canada, created, and will unfurl the world’s first ecosexual pride flag.

The artist-brides are looking for a few more sponsors and collaborators. On board are California Institute of the Arts, GT’s Kombucha, Center for Sex and Culture, Good Vibrations, One Amazon Acai, and Luna Pads. They also invite individuals to contribute as backers through the Kickstarter fundraising platform. In exchange, backers get their names in the wedding program, moon-shaped tit prints, and Beth Stephens’ sculptures of Annie Sprinkle’s bronzed panties! http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/152588950/purple-wedding-to-the-moon-and- ecosex-honeymoon-sy

''Unfortunately our marriage to the Moon will not be legal.'' The brides lament. ''Nonetheless it is a most sacred union.'' They request that everyone please wear purple. The wedding is free and open to the public, ''Its a big, juicy, pollen- amourous labor of love.''

Some of the many performers and artists participating (in random order) are blues diva, Candye Kane; professor and art-activist, Larry Bogad, Ph.D.; ecosexual opera singer, Emma McNairy; flower boy/girl, Adam Harms; fire hula- hooper, Sarah Starlight & Co; burlesque sensation and fire tassel queen, Lady Monster; songwriter, Xandra Coe; crazy disgruntled heiress, Naomi Pitcarin; Balkan sevda singer, Nada Miljkovic; performance artist Lian Amaris; filmmaker, Cheryl Dunye; Jordanian food artist, Diala Khasawnih; experimental musician, no.e sunflowrfish; tattoo artists, the Book Club; music composer, HB3; sex worker activist, Mariko Passion; Good Times magazine editor, Greg Archer; cake artist and puppeteer Pratbha & Tony’s Circus; ritualist, Alan Tofelson; sexpert Jayme Waxman, flag artists Cindy & KC Baker; drag queen, Miss Prick, Cal Arts students; Dylan Bolles; Hate Bear; real newlyweds, Jordan Tynes & Taylor McVay; and many others.
