Four Queer Poets read Thursday in Vancouver, BC

I'm reading at Rhizome (317 East Broadway) in Vancouver, BC
on Thursday, November 20th at 7pm (possibly 7:30; I seem to have
two times written down).

I'm lucky to be sharing the bill with Christine Leclerc, Jen Currin,
and Betsy Warland.

We promise delight. Really -- we do.

Church and State: Just Married in CA

Here's Ashton Kutcher, getting all mad about Prop 8.
Political rage can be so sexy:

Elizabeth and I attended the march in Seattle yesterday. My favorite signs:

God hates shrimp.
If I can't marry my boyfriend, I'll marry your daughter.
If Liza can marry a gay man, why can't I?

Less charming were signs that seemed to buy into the Fundie/Mormon's "divide
and conquer" strategy, pitting (white) gays against (straight) people of color.
It's tragic to see minority groups working against each other (and themselves),
believing the lie that justice is a limited resource.

Keith Olbermann on Prop 8

Lyrical, direct, intense -- as political speeches should be.

Reading Friday in Oly with Elizabeth Colen and Kelly Magee

Here are the details:

On Friday, November 14th at 7pm at Orca Books in Olympia, WA
Elizabeth Colen, Carol Guess, and Kelly Magee will read poetry and prose

I've also added a Seattle reading to my list: Jan 27th at Elliott Bay
And more:

Saturday, November 15th nationwide protests against Prop 8

Right now I'm reading Kathleen Rooney's Oneiromance, which
is stunningly beautiful and sexy, and Priscilla Becker's Internal West,
which is elegant and stark.
