Watch This: Calling out Call-Out Culture

Oppressed people of every stripe (and, well, everybody) should strive to offer each other support, patience, and love—history has shown us over and over there is strength and safety in numbers.

Getting Gay at the SIFF Gay-La

Getting Gay at the SIFF Gay-La

Black tie and prom dresses, a DJ resembling a combination of Buddy Holly and Alfred Hitchcock, and a leather daddy building a motorcycle with a side car for his dog. It must be another SIFF Gay-la.

Watch This: Cell Phone Demolition Derby

Watch This: Cell Phone Demolition Derby

When my cell phone demolition derby began, I wasn’t even drunk. I was cleaning my apartment one afternoon and leaned forward at an angle that sent the phone sliding into a compost heap. I don’t even know what object in the compost was hard enough to shatter a phone screen—the bin contained 95% profoundly decomposed avocado skins.

Watch This: Lady Krishna’s Fairytale Mystique

You’ve seen Lady Krishna—hair dyed a glowing primary color beneath a dramatic hat of Fellini proportions, round mid-century glasses that would look at home in Warhol’s Factory.

Watch This: My Favorite Party Ever

The first Bowiemas I attended was held in a warehouse of questionable structural integrity overlooking Gasworks park. Santa isn’t real, but Bowie was real and as far as I’m concerned performed real magic.

Watch This: Royal and the Radio Flyer

One night my friends, fellow explorers of abandoned buildings who I’ll call Royal and #2, wanted to go far south where they had discovered some promisingly ramshackle houses.

Watch This: A Nose For Every Occasion

Watch This: A Nose For Every Occasion

I spent my childhood riding any object that would roll in a relatively straight line and climbing anything vertical. I was cautious and durable—I came home from exploring notorious “Dead Man’s Cave” in Karkeek Park (so named because a corpse was once found in it) with...

Watch This: Women Try Cruising the Arboretum

Photo by Mary Anne Carter. Ever since a teenage summer spent devouring John Rechy novels (City of Night, Numbers, etc) I have completely romanticized the world of gay cruising. At an age when I sort of actually expected to run into the Ramones circa 1977 just...
