I have just returned from a trip to San Francisco, in which I read at K'vetch, had an art show at the Lexington Club, and took a tour of the GLBT Historical Society.
A very gay trip in all.
At the GLBT Historical Society I got choked up reading the testimonials of senior citizens involved in the Lavender Scrolls Project . I live in a very privileged space and time, and was feel very grateful after reading the stories of people who had to live in the closet for most of their lives.
Click on these images to see larger, readable versions of the scrolls.
Before the GLBT Historical Society, I read at K'vetch.
K'vetch is a Queer Open Mic night held at Eros, the gay man bath house. I wore a towel and read in their lobby with Yirko Sale. I gave live rapid-fire advice and read about the Dr. Laura Show while Kirk Read clicked through my power point presentation.
I wore a cardigan over my towel.
Next are photos from the MONTECORE reception at the Lexington Club, March 3rd.
The Lexington Club is San Francisco's longest standing Lesbian Bar, and I felt honored to have my work on their hallowed and historic walls.
Montecore is a work in progress, and is about Narcissism in Love.
This show also had work from the 2009 Queer Animal Calendar, as well as a couple of pieces from Ghost Wolves.
Email me for information on purchasing originals or prints from this show.
I was helped Hugely on this trip by my sister Kristi, Leila & Ariel at the Lex, Tara and Kirk; who drove me around, let me stay at their house, helped me hang the show, and hosted the reading respectively . Thank you.
And to Kirk i promise: Never Twitter.
