julia update june 2013!

Hello, welcome to June, happy Pride month!

Speaking thereof, I will be participating in two Pride month events:

1) Thursday, June 27th will be Girl Talk's big 5 year anniversary show! For those unfamiliar with the show, it is an annual spoken word show (with some music and other art/performances) designed to foster dialogue about the many relationships (partners, lovers, friends, & allies) shared by queer trans women, queer cis women, and genderqueer folks.

In addition to being one of the co-curators of the show (along with Gina de Vries and Elena Rose), I will be performing in it as well. We have an amazing cast, including Dominika Bednarska, Gina de Vries, DavEnd, Dr. Carol Queen, Elena Rose, Jos Truitt, and Tara Hardy!

More info about all the performers (and the show) can be found here:

The show will be at the African American Art & Culture Complex (AAACC)
762 Fulton Street @ Webster
at 7:30pm
$12 – $20 sliding scale online; $15 – $20 at the door.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Past Girl Talk shows have *SOLD OUT* up to a week in advance, so I highly recommend purchasing tickets online RIGHT NOW at:

So the day after Girl Talk, I am flying up to Seattle to participate in Seattle's first ever Trans* Pride event!

Friday June 28th, 2013
The festivities begin at 5pm at in Front of Seattle Central Community College at E. Howell & Broadway St.
There will be a march, followed by a number of speakers (including me) and performers (including Rae Spoon & Ian Harvie).

I also post all my upcoming events and news on my aforementioned blog, and it also all automatically gets forwarded to my Facebook "writer" page:

  1. Really looking forward to Girltalk again this year! Somehow, I don't think Lisa Vogel is going to come back this year. I get the feeling she wasn't that enthused about the whole thing last year! :-(

  2. yes, I only heard about her being there last year after the fact. it obviously did not have a substantial effect on her views on the matter...


***FYI*** I am no longer accepting comments on my blog. I explain all the reasons why on my aptly entitled blog-post I’m discontinuing comments on my blog. Here’s why....

If this post still has a "comment box," it is only because I overlooked/neglected it when I systematically locked all the comments. So please do not bother commenting, because I will automatically reject it. Please take no offense - it is a general blog-wide policy...
