Sunday, October 2nd 2011 at 12:45p on the Storytelling and Readings Stage
I’ll be reading at the West Hollywood Book Fair on Sunday October 2nd as part of the diversity reading on the Homo-Centric stage. Hank Henderson’s vision was to get six different writers who represent each of the LGBTIQ letters in our beautiful queer alphabet.
Hank pulled out a little pad of paper, scrawling my name down under the mish mash of notes in the cluttered little booklet. “How do you identify?” He asked me flatly. This is a common question in post modern identity politicking circles:
“Squeeze me in under ‘B’ for ‘bisexual’ or ‘Q’ for queer!” I smiled but he seemed slightly perturbed.
“Pick one. It doesn’t mean you’re not both but for the purpose of this reading Puh-lease! Just pick one!” he said sounding more queenie than usual.
“Okay!” I squealed! “‘B’ for ‘bisexual!’” I responded smiling brightly.
I’ve really been feeling the love for the bisexies lately and I feel excited and proud to rep the bisexy love at the West Hollywood Book Fair. Also reading will be:
