Tonight was a fabulous reading at a great queer bookstore downtown, Outwrite Books, featuring Sister So Am I (one of the founding members of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence; wow, what a moving blast of history), the YA writer Alex Sanchez, marvelous poet and all-around great guy Dan Vera, and Paul Lisicky, who read a piece about his mother's dementia that moved me deeply.
Afterward, I went with a group of these guys to a great pub. It was 8 gay guys and me, my kind of night. I love being the token lesbian mascot.
I wore my "OBAMA: This Time I Want a Smart President" tee-shirt today, and Mark wore his that said "Polar Bears for OBAMA."
It's great to be here but I miss Annie. Wish she were here.
