Home again (for the moment)


Homo No MO?
Originally uploaded by p2son.

I arrived in NYC from London last night at 8pm and didn’t crawl into my own bed until 2am, but it was worth the effort go all the way home to Hartford last night.

Home for two days. Tomorrow I’ll be at the Watkinson School where I will present my theater piece How the Indians Discovered Columbus. In it I highlight some of what we know about the Tainos, the people who lived in the Caribbean when Cristobal Colon and his men invaded the islands. (yes, I have an opinion about that history)

Earlier today I got together with my friend, John Selders, a real champion of queer issues and the minister of Amistad Church UCC here in Hartford.

Later this week I will get to present at the Boston Arts Academy, a public school with an emphasis on performing and visual arts. I will present Queer 101 then lead groups with New England Quaker wonder woman, Lisa Graustein on Thursday. Friday I will lead a master class in theater and talk to more students.

Towards the end of October I return to Boston to perform Doin’ Time in the Homo No Mo Halfway House at Northeastern University then I’m off to Baltimore the weekend of Oct 14 to do Homo No Mo, Queer 101, excerpts of The Re-Education of George W. Bush and to talk about the “ex-gay” movement.

Towards the end of the month I will be at SUNY Oneonta (Upstate NY) for Queer 101 and then I will perform Footprints, An Inspirational Comedy in Middletown, CT.

Basically this month I will perform pretty much every theater piece I’ve ever written. Tina Encarnacion cautioned me not mix up my scripts or else we might end up with Columbus discovering his sexuality with Jesus on the beach as they discuss the enviormental footprints in the sand of George W. Bush.

Nice to be home for a little, to walk around my neighborhood and catch up with friends.

    We’d like to come if we can, but where is that location? Northeastern somewhere. Is the venue called After Hours? Where is it located exactly?

    I wish I could see some of these other pieces of yours. What can I do to get you to come on out to Denver again?

    Abby, well the Northeastern University gig has now been postponed until Tuesday October 25. Something to do with the Red Sox playing next week. Jeez, they win a world series one year and then the whole of Boston life has to be affected for the rest of our lives!

    I’ll give you more info when I know more. I think it is easy to get to. Also, I’ll e-mail you/call you about this week. Friday might be a good night to hang out.

    Risingup,
    Would LOVE to return to Denver. All I need is a primary gig then we can set up a bunch of other ones. I know that Denver U was interested in having me return. I’ll look into it. Of course if you have any contacts, let me know.

    Will call you soon, just have to settle back into my life (and rehearse!)
