I have not put up the 2007 winter/spring schedule yet, but it is looking hot, hot, hot! I see 2007 as the Year of the Survivor. I hope to see many people share their stories on blogs, stages, podcasts, and in conversation and art.
Therefore, in addition to my regular presentations, I will also lead several workshops and retreats designed to engage folks in exploring and sharing their stories. I’ve said it before, there is a mysterious power in telling our stories.
January will bring me to Chicago the weekend of January 12th for the Quake that Rocked the Mid-West, a Quaker high school retreat. (As of yet, I have nothing planned for the evening of Sunday, January 14. If you know of a group, gay church, etc who might be interested in having me do a talk or something that night in the Chicago area, let me know as it is still open.)
January 18-31 I will be in Portland area. The first weekend I will help lead a retreat for the Anawim Community, a gay male Christian group. Then I will do a series of talks, performances, and more throughout the week of January 21 including Quaker meetings, universities, gay churches, drag bars, and more in the works. The schedule is filling up fast. I will post the calendar once I know it.
Mid-February will bring me to Greensboro, NC for the Friends of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Queer Concerns’ (FLGBTQC) annual mid-winter gathering. I will also perform at Guildford College. Also, on February 25th, I will present at Chelsea Church in NYC for their Sunday service.
March will enable me to perform closer to home in Hartford on the 10th and Syracuse University on the 1st. I will also be very active at the True Colors Conference in New Britain, CT March 23,24 (where you will also see Elliot lead a workshop–go Elliot!)
April brings me to Earlham College in Indiana from the 2nd through the 4th. I then head back to North Carolina–details TBA. Towards the end of the month, I will co-lead a Queer Quaker retreat at Woolman Hill in Western Massachusetts (27th-29th).
May will bring me back to Europe for a month of presentations in England, Scotland and Sweden. This trip is still pretty open, so if you have a group who might be interested in doing something, let me know as we pull it together.
There are lots more presentations in the works plus some exciting radio projects and more. Will keep you posted.
