Playing Catch-Up

I had a super weekend in Baltimore performing two of my plays and premiering some new material (The Re-Education of George W. Bush). I met some super new people and caught up with old friends.

Notably I hung out a bit with Bruce Garrett, the fantastic cartoon artist and blogger. He showed me some of his original artwork including a piece he did about Love in Action and some his new fun and insightful coming out series.

In the past few weeks I’ve blogged a lot (and I still have more posts to put up) and I thought readers need a chance to catch up. I’ve been able to spend time thinking about several issues regarding the “ex-gay” movement, homophobia, US history and race issues among white queer leaders.

Here are some post I would love you to read if you haven’t yet.

Who is Silencing the Ex-Gays?

What’s Under the Anger? (That is the anger and hate that some conservatives spew out at people who are LGBTQ)

Ex-Gay, Just a Crazy American Thing?

White Gay Leaders Attempt to Bridge the Racial Gap

The Day the Indians Discovered Columbus

The False Image of LIA (I apply one of the cornerstone teachings of Love in Action to the program director himself)

    Aw, that’s so cool! You know Bruce allowed me to use that cartoon for the Free Z book coming up? I love it, It’s great. I coloured it, too. *proud smile*

    I saw “Homo No Mo” on Friday night in Baltimore, and I just wanted to thank you again for the terrific performance! (I’m the woman who talked to you at the reception about my daughter coming out.) I enjoyed the show tremendously — I wish my daughter and her partner could have seen it. If you get back to the DC-Baltimore area some time, I’ll make sure they don’t miss it!

    Thanks again Peterson, for bringing your shows to Baltimore, and for taking some time out of your schedule to hang out with me. It was great talking with you.

    The rest of you who haven’t seen Peterson’s shows…you have to see them!

    (Hey Willie!) Yes…Willie added color to that cartoon for the new Free Z comic, and in a way that fits very well with her other color work. Can’t wait to see the finished comic.

    I have this dream…that someday you and Willie and I can sit around a table in some fine establishment somewhere and chat to our heart’s content…

    Just a quick FYI. Looks like the ADF is getting involved in the LIA/r mess.
