While some are on the front lines of serving the public and tending to the sick, so many more of us must stay at home for the good of everyone. From scrolling through FB and Instagram, I see a whole lot of people are cooking and baking. I shocked my husband with an artisanal looking round loaf I pulled out of the oven. After more than 10 years together he had no idea I could bake bread. I guess I never stayed still long enough to get that domesticated.
But that is what boredom will do. I recently wrote about the Blessing of Boredom; you may feel overly blessed with it at the moment. To help, I am sharing some things for you.
You choose Seriously Silly or Seriously Sublime or both!
FREE on-line screenings during #coronavirus isolation
I am pleased to announce I am offering free streaming of my two films.
Doin’ Time in the Homo Halfway House is my one-person, multi-character comedy about the trauma of conversion therapy. I lived for two years in the notorious Love in Action program. This is the same program that inspired the Boy Erased, the excellent memoir by Garrard Conley that was turned into a film.
I do not have the writing chops that Conley possesses or the emotional strength to publish a memoir, but I do have comedy and characters. The film was shot and by Morgan Jon Fox, who produced the award winning documentary, This is What Love in Action Looks Like.

The other film I have released for free screening is Transfigurations–Gender Outlaws in the Bible. Similar to the performance lecture version which looks at gender non-conforming Bible characters, you experience a range of genders revealed in a variety of Bible characters. This rarely seen version though is a play without commentary and with a dramatic ending. Both versions were directed by Samuel Neff.
Watch Transfigurations for free.

If you prefer the lecture version, you can watch it on Amazon Prime. I also have a free study guide you can use with either version.
Plenty of Podcasts
If you are looking for a podcast to entertain or enlighten you (or both,) I have four different podcasts I produce. You can find them wherever you get podcasts. Here are the most recent episodes.
Please feel free to share these resources on your social media and among your friends and followers.
