The Steampunk Airship La Marianne is a lifestyle airship. We believe Steampunk and other genre punk are inherently political. Airship La Marianne works towards creating a punk subculture that supports individual self-expression opposed to mainstream consumerism and politics. This philosophy is incorporated into the crew’s individual lifestyles and worldviews; it is not a mindset adopted for Steampunk functions and abandoned upon departure.
While we acknowledge that there are some benefits to some mass-production, our Airship supports Do It Yourself (DIY) whenever possible and practical. As an extension of this we support independent artists as well as independent and cooperative economic enterprises rather than feeding the global corporate machine.
Though we identify ourselves as a Steampunk airship our membership is not limited to just steampunks. Along with Steampunk, we accept and support individuals who are interested in the lifestyle all of the -punk genres such as Renpunk, Dieselpunk, Cyberpunk, Atomicpunk, Biopunk and others.
Airship La Marianne exists to provide support to its members, as well those outside the Airship, through mutual aid and cooperation.
We celebrate and welcome the great diversity of the human race. Airship La Marianne accepts and celebrates individual differences such as race, color, sex, gender, (including gender identity and expression), pregnancy, religion, creed, marital status, partnership status, age, sexual orientation, national origin, or disability.
