Words With Strangers

On Sunday, February 12, 2012, I produced a fantastic evening of spoken word (with a couple of songs thrown in). This evening brought in folks who had never been to The Stonewall Inn before. There was much humor and bawdiness, but also some profound moments amongst an array of brilliant (and not so brilliant) writing. A highlight? Making a hot, straight guy read one of my raunchy poems written in college.

For its 10th anniversary, I’ve given this song a makeover. I wrote it during the fight for marriage equality, yet the song still resonates given the actions and goals of the current administration. This July, I celebrate 10 years of marriage with the man this song is about. No one can take that away from us.
