Amazon is totally a megalomaniac that has a monopoly on the market, blah blah blah. An aside: they have these nifty wish lists. As a starving artist, my list is of fun things that i probably cannot afford but would make me happy. Feel free to hook me up with any of this swag and make my day.

I have been super busy and forgetting to update here. Most recently I had a performance for North West New Works where I performed an excerpt of The Most Popular Unpopular: Casting a spell to transmute physical pain and memory into motion to gain a cathartic sense of self and loss of identity.
On 4/20 I performed a piece for the 14th Fussy Cloud Puppet Slam on nonviolent drug offenses and street economies. See that poster? I designed that! 🙂

Tuesday, April 18 is National Transgender HIV Testing Day (NTHTD), an observance designed to recognize the importance of routine HIV testing, status awareness and continued focus on HIV prevention and treatment efforts among transgender people. The observance is organized by the Center of Excellence for Transgender Health.
In the United States, it is estimated that around 1.4 million adults identify as transgender. Transgender women are at high risk of having HIV and of contracting HIV. Transgender women of color, especially black/African American and Hispanic/Latina women, experience disproportionately high rates of HIV. There is a gap in research on HIV and transgender men; few studies have gathered HIV prevalence data for this population.
Please refrain from wearing scents. Here is a page on how and why to be scent free.
Youngstown Cultural Center is on the 120 & 125 line. It is a ADA building but the entrance situation is a bit complicated. All of the doors are manual. There is a ramp in the front of the building and a lift or it is possible to enter from the back and bypass the ramp and lift. There are 8 stairs up to the main door where the ramp is and three steps were the lift is. The side parking lot entrance has no barriers except a small ramp inside the building. We are in the South Classroom.
I am doing an HIV 101 presentation for this. 🙂

Fatigue is supposedly one of the most common symptoms of chronic illnesses. It is the common thread between so many disabled people. Fatigue can run our lives in nearly every way imaginable. Even more frustrating is when we reach out for support and are met with disbelief from doctors to friends and family. This show is meant to highlight the experiences of those with fatigue. A chance for us to share our stories and hype one another.

The health of some of the perfomers may be harmed by exposure to cologne, perfume, or other fragrances–which may cause difficulty breathing, migraine headaches, flu-like symptoms and more. These symptoms are not always readily apparent and sometimes show up hours later or persist for days after an exposure. (Borrowed from Gay City Arts)

Excited to announce that an excerpt from my piece The Most Popular Unpopular will be debuted at On The Boards NW New Works Festival in June!
Now in its 35th year, the NW New Works Festival showcases new and experimental works from a variety of performance disciplines, upholding its mission to showcase tomorrow’s artists today within the Northwest’s creative community.
Curated by a panel of peer artists and arts administrators from across the region, the Festival provides rehearsal time, an honorarium, documentation, and the opportunity to present work at OtB. In the past few years audiences have witnessed new pieces from artists including Tim Smith-Stewart/Jeffrey Azevedo, Jessica Jobaris & General Magic, and Markeith Wiley — all of whose work has become part of regular seasons at On the Boards.
