The Boston Girl Guide is currently the only female promotion publication in the Boston area.  Women need a voice, and a place to express themselves. The Boston Girl Guide is committed to this.  We are poetry and visual art. We are music and movement . We are daring and deliriously twisted.  We need to be seen and heard.

The Story of...
Boston Girl Guide and the woman behind it
~A guide for women to come together creatively~

Boston Girl Guide

The Boston Girl Guide is committed to helping promote female Independent Artists, Photographers, Musicians, Poets, Theater Groups, Comedians and Writers. We also cover signed artist, non-profit events and many different types of venues. We introduce independent artists and run them with signed artists so that they get media exposure they deserve. The Boston Girl Guide also branches out to male indies and features them in the “Boys on the Side” pages.

On the web site you will find many forms of creative expression as well as a huge resource center for connecting you to the info you need. Check out the Photogallery and see all your favorite performers. We cover a lot of shows and our photographers shoot behind the scenes as well as the stage to bring you a back stage peek. We even have a top ten favorite list to turn you on to music that you may have not heard before. There is a lot to check out so be sure to keep checking in…

About Rose
Rose Gardina Creator: Boston Girl Guide
In 1999 Rose bought her first computer and with the help from a few friends she taught herself how to work not only with a computer but all the programs that are involved in publishing. The magazine/webzine is completely her creation. She created the columns and has a wonderful staff of writers and photographers that contribute to this publication.

Since June of 2000 she has committed herself to helping women in the arts get the much needed media support that is so hard to come by in this industry. Her goals are to become non-profit and eventually have some sort of grant program that can be put into place to help these women financially as well. If you work in non-profit and think you can help give her a call ! To make a monetary donation [click here]

Rose has financed this project entirely on her own and as a result these past few years have been extremely difficult for her, but she has never given up. She felt that it was time to have a creative venue for women and the Boston Girl Guide was born. The bostongirlguide.com gets well over 50,000 hits a month and is updated on a regular basis due to the overwhelming amount of Venues and Artists that she supports.

She is an activist and is extremely passionate about all the organizations that she supports and helps to spread the word for us to take action, not only in our own communities but in the world around us as well.

She started RG Promotions that promoted Sophie B. Hawkins with Heather Bright in Sept. Of 2003 and in 2004 was one of the Main Event Coordinators for the Gay/Straight Youth Pride in Boston.

Rose started Thundamoon Records in 2005 and is managing rocker/poet/singer/songwriter Jennifer Matthews. They have been on tour and working together since May of 2004.

Thru Thundamoon Records they released 'The Wheel' in May of 2005, 'The Sunroom Sessions' in June of 2006, 'Under the Sea' a children’s record by Kyle Davis and Jennifer Matthews in the summer of 2005, The DVD 'Live at the Piper Club' in Rome, Italy with Terre Sommerse in 2009 and 'The Lost Recordings' in August of 2010. Jennifer also just finished up her 7th full length record 'Tales of a Salty Sweetheart' to be released in the Fall of 2013. 

She is a graphic artist (Thundamoon Graphics) and web designer ..the biggest site being her own.
Rose is also an artist, writer, photographer and poet. She is a true patron of the arts.

Quotes from Rose

"My dream was to have a medium that everyone could be a part of. To provide a place where creative women could be seen and heard, and to provide a place for our current and future stars to shine. It has been a great journey. I have learned and have grown every step of the way. I have met some of the most ambitious, creative, loving, spiritual, talented and amazing artist.”

“This Publication is my gift to all as well as myself. It is a place to be creative and to be heard. It is a place to see how different yet how the same we all really are. Be open and true to whom you are. Believe in yourself and live your truth no matter where it may bring you and how hard it may be at times. We grow with every choice we make. We learn with pain and happiness. And we search endlessly for life's answers."
