  • Judge Orders U.S. Military to Stop ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    This is in no way final, but it's a huge step!

  • I saw Andrea Gibson perform today! She was intense and mind-blowing as per usual. Gah, she is so fucking awesome.

  • Unsurprisingly, there was a heavy queer theme to the open mic that went before Andrea Gibson's performance. There was a lot of talk about the recent media attention to recent gay suicides and bashings. Several poems were dedicated to the dead. So I was feeling pretty down on the way home. But then, this news of DADT completely cheered me up. Hooray for progress that isn't marriage! (Which is not to say that gay marriage isn't an important civil rights issue, it's just far from the most important.)

  • Have been talking to people about arranging a group cosplay for Boston Comic Con. Apparently I might be dressing up at Billy Kaplan?

Every time I hear this I am brought to the edge of tears.

"I wanna grow into something none of us has ever seen before, and gender is just one of the ways we’re boxed in and labeled, before we’re ever able to speak who we dream we are, who we believe we’ll become, like drumbeats ever changing their rhythm. I am living today as someone I had not yet become yesterday, and tonight I will borrow only pieces of who I was today to carry with me to tomorrow.

No, I’m not gay. No, I’m not straight, and I’m sure as hell not bisexual, damn it! I am whatever I am when I am it, loving whoever you are when the stars shine and whoever you’ll be when the sun rises." - Andrea Gibson

Sheer. Brilliance.

Anybody who likes poetry and fairy tales needs to follow that link. And if you would really like a treat, go to the archives, go to Summer 08, and listen to the epilogue, The Night Journey by Terri Windling. (Yes, listen. Click on those blue dots next to the titles to hear the poems aloud, which is unfortunately not immediately apparent.)
