All week it’s been as if a giant lever was dislodging some of the last remaining solidities in my life. Lady Icarus made another run for the sun; my mental and physical health, both precarious, but previously parallel, show signs of intersecting in dangerous ways; a beloved community of more than 20 years is dying; even Paul Schimmel’s firing and Paula Harper’s death feel like part of a storm surge that will carry me even further away from any kind of peace or stability I’ve scrabbled together. Sometimes the difference between drowning and swimming is negligible. Either way everything changes, again.

“Maybe if everyone walked around being in touch with each other’s hidden pain it could work out and even be beautiful, but it doesn’t feel safe to be the only compassionate person on the planet.”

synecdoche:

“I will never forgive myself for bailing on internet famous make out party” is something I never thought I’d say.

I am forgiving myself because it was truly the right thing to do and everyone was so nice about it. Perhaps all of those therapy sessions at the pain clinic are paying off.

Drag Queen arrested in front of Stonewall Inn

Just days before Pride March, a dance party in the street in front of the birth place of gay rights, the Stonewall Inn, is broken up by NYPD. Who is the only person the NYPD arrests? A black trans drag queen, one of the most vulnerable members of the group. A contingent of radical queers agitated against the police and successfully mediated to have the arrestee released after only half an hour. People were reminding the police, Stonewall was a riot!

holy shit

I know almost everyone in these photos who is not a cop!

Our Amy dazzles the NYPD!!

“It’s dark.
You exhale a fist of memory.
I love you like weathering wood
in a room of empty pianos.

When you return to something you love,
it’s already beyond repair.
You wear it broken.”
