Hey folks! I’ll be reading a new story about the time I wanted to make out with a pretty boy and ended up organizing a consensual gang bang for a […]
You know a month has a bad rep when the cheeriest quote you can find is from Jean-Paul Satre. The author of ‘Nausea’ said, “To read a poem in January […]

Be inspired to create, to celebrate and to keep telling your stories! A little encouragement can go a long way. Some times all it takes is one festival to screen your film, one person to tell you how much your work meant to them to motivate you to keep on creating. And while the nymph of inspiration may flit in and out of our lives, the artists we are showcasing work tirelessly even when that elusive sprite is no where to be found. These filmmakers pour over dailies, spend long nights editing, and toss and turn at night wondering what they’ll do if they don’t meet their Kickstarter goals. And sometimes we just want to throw in the towel and crawl into a hole and never come out…This is DIY filmmaking. This is why we need festivals. This is why we need awards.
I’ve always known I was not straight; I was called a lesbian in 4th grade before I even knew what the word meant and still I knew that they were […]

She teetered on five inch heels, drunk on whiskey and macho femme bravado. The cement floor of the bar’s basement was cold and my knees began to ache. The quickness of my breath and the loud drumming of my heart made the dull pain in my knees seem distant. She pulled my hair tightly and pulled my face close to her painted mouth. I smelled the sweat of her neck, the soft perfume of her hair. My pussy ached and the warmth spread through the folds of my lips the same way it did in my chest when I drank the good whiskey she poured for me from her tiny silver flask.
The Folsom Street Fair is no soft-core 50 Shades of Grey: the goings on at this celebration of sadomasochistic hedonism would put even Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights to shame! Each […]
I’ll be reading out of the back of Apt 3F’s U-Hall truck with my HOMO-CENTRIC friends Hank Henderson and Ryka De La Cruz. No, I don’t have a new girlfriend, the […]
Sometimes I say that I am a professional bisexual and other times I say I am “straight for pay”. Only it seems I am becoming straight FOR FREE with increasing regularity and part of me wonders if I should be alarmed!
M. Jackalinski’s color test for the short story “Professional Bisexual” That’s me and Miller riding the bus to Occupy. We are professional (and lifestyle) monsters, really.
My first “not gay” reading on Friday, June 8th pretty much confirms this! I mean, don’t get me wrong, Featherless co-curators Andrea Lambert and Katie are pretty gay (in fact I heard they’re actually GAY TOGETHER!) but still it is a bit thrilling to read at something that is not explicitly HOMO. I’m also thrilled to have the opportunity to read with two really amazing women, Michelle Joyner and Dana Johnson. I’ve been busy working on a chapbook entitled “Professional Bisexual” that I hope to have ready by then. I’m collaborating with some really amazing illustrators including Tara Avery, M. Jackalinski and Amie Wee who is also doing the layout and cover design. I’ve wanted to collaborate with all three artists for years and am thrilled to be doing so now.
