Happy Pride Month! We have officially released Lancaster Pride's 2019 Festival line-up on Lancaster Pride's Facebook!

It is such an honor to work with the following acts in this years line-up! We spent months and many, many nights down the queer rabbit hole researching LGBT+ artists. Precisely and consciously creating a line-up representing each acronym in the LGBTQIA+ community! It is extremely important to us to give the mic to womxn on any stage we work on. We are so proud to bring trans womxn and trans womxn of color, queer people of color to the front of this stage at Clipper Magazine Stadium. Thank you Lancaster Pride for trusting and allowing Animal House to have complete creative control on this build and design for the festival layout in itself! Bliss bliss!

Animal House releases a series of personal safety, self-defense workshops, and firearm instruction training in Lancaster City dedicated to womxn and the LGBTQIA+ community - coming this May and June 2019 to a studio near you! View our calendar listings for more info regarding these workshops and training, here.

Ryan Gabriel Davis (founder of Animal House Productions) will be hosting affordable self-defense and situational awareness workshops in Lancaster City in safe, inclusive, comfortable environments at studios and centers in the area. Davis was inspired to create and provide these workshops to those that identify as womxn, those whose identity includes womxn, femmes, and those womxn-aligned and members of the LGBTQIA+ community after having friends and family members recently personally experience frightening situations in Uber pickups and grocery stores where their personal safety was a concern.
Davis encourages members of his community to participate in furthering educating themselves on situational awareness by learning tips on how to keep yourself safe in your day to day living and by practicing tactical skills to feel more confident, empowered, and prepared with the ability to protect yourself against a physical attacker if such situations arise.
Davis will be working with Kristine Smith of Fitness Inspired Tactical Training. Fitness Inspired Tactical Training is a female-led tactical training by founder and instructor Kristine Smith. F.I.T.T. is the only training environment in the Lancaster area that is 100% focused on tactical awareness and self-defense. We’re here to equip you to respond INSTINCTIVELY, QUICKLY and DECISIVELY when it matters most. You can read more about Kristine Smith (self-defense trainer) below! We hope to see you at one or all of these workshops! Thank you for investing in yourself!

KRISTINE
SMITH

Kristine Smith was born and raised in NYC. Kristine studied at St. Johns University and obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice. Upon completion of her degree, Kristine worked in various roles in private security as well as one of the most prestigious international law firms in New York. However, it had been her lifelong goal to become part of the NYPD and she was honored to be accepted into the New York City Police Academy.

Kristine graduated from the NYPD Police Academy in the top ten percent of her class of 1,100 graduates. She was assigned to the 9th precinct in the lower east side of Manhattan, where she served in several capacities, many of them in special operations.

Following retirement from the police force, Kristine and her family relocated to Lancaster, PA, where she has been an active member of the martial arts community for several years. Kristine recently earned her 2nd Dan Black Belt under Grand Master Nam and Master Cuascut.

Beyond martial arts training, Kristine is on a mission to empower women with the confidence and skills they need to avoid dangerous situations and act to defend themselves when the need arises.
