Some Kind of Resistance Tour, 2017
On tour, I’ll be:
- reading from my queer-as-fuck novel Riding SideSaddle*, while being a loud and vocal trans woman.
- speaking about empathy in art and code and software.
- chatting about queer identities, hate, politics, and intersectionality.
- hugging people.
I’m not changing the world here, there’s more to do, but it feels like a nice way to get started, find my energy, and find my people.

Any profits will go to one of these rad organizations committed to empowering women, people of color, immigrants, queers, Muslims, and disabled people — or fighting climate change. If you have a specific organization to recommend, I’m all ears.
This month’s Denver Quarterly features side-by-side excerpts from my novel, Riding SideSaddle*, and the Buntport play 10 Myths on the Proper Application of Beauty Products which was based on it.
An award I’m happy to share with my amazing collaborators in Buntport Theater & Teacup Gorilla.
It’s been a month since our country pseudo-elected a bigoted blow-hard for president. I’m heading to DC to protest his inauguration in January, visit friends, and go on a mixed-media resistance tour…
I’m excited to be part of Buntport Theater’s 40th original full-length production — based on my novel, Riding SideSaddle*, and featuring a live score by Teacup Gorilla. It’s been a wild month pulling it all together!
