Magic Words: Using Erotic Writing To Explore Your Hidden Sexuality And Spirituality


Wednesday, April 29, 6:30-8:30pm
$20 in advance, $25 at the door
Tickets: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/1410432
1620 Polk St, San Francisco 94109

There are many ways to reach your inner sexual and spiritual self––but one of the most surprisingly powerful paths is through the written word. In this lecture/workshop, participants will hear how erotic writing (fiction as well non-fiction) can reach hidden places that often lay unexposed, help make personal discoveries and to assist in a personal journey of self and sensuality. Participants will learn how to free their erotic writing voices, how to develop their writing towards discovering the erotic spirits within, and when to silence––and when to listen to––the inner critic.

Mo’Nique: ‘Listen, Honey, I Hung Out With The Gay Babies…’

In her first movie since her Oscar-winning turn in Precious (2009), the ferocious Mo’Nique is playing another mother, this one convinced that her son’s gayness is God’s punishment and responsible for the disappearance of her young daughter.

It’s Blackbird, a personal and affecting movie directed by Patrik-Ian Polk (Punks, Noah’s Arc), based on the 1986 novel by California-based Larry Duplechan. Set in a small Mississippi town, the film starts with burgeoning teen Randy Rousseau (played by the winning Julian Walker) having a wet dream about gay sex happening in the middle of a choir performance. In a sweat, he wakes up and prays to Jesus.

Randy is having trouble accepting his sexuality—as does mom—though it seems like everyone else is OK with it, including his friends and his dad (Isaiah Washington). Inching out of the closet, Randy performs in an all-male Romeo and Juliet, then a short film with an openly gay cohort who falls for him and tries to bring him out into openness. How he—and mom—evolve is for you to find out by checking out this film.

should i fight this u.s. president?

fight these presidents:

  • john adams (you punch him in the face and he is only ghastly offended for thirty years and writes three memoirs about it)
  • thomas jefferson (just please fuck up thomas jefferson for all of us)
  • john quincy adams (i don’t like his hair)
  • andrew jackson (you probably won’t win. i don’t care. tear this bastard’s face off)
  • martin van buren (this asshole in his time in senate influenced our current party system. he needs to be fought.)

  • herbert hoover (dude didn’t do shit during the great depression, and i also cannot express my need to fight j edgar hoover in this post, so this hoover will have to do)

  • bill clinton (he stands no chance and it’ll be a good bonding experience. don’t fuck with hilary tho)

fight these presidents if you want idk enough about them to dispute it:

  • william henry harrison (like, there’s nothing to fight here honestly)
  • john tyler (my first response to this dude was ‘who is this fuckboy’ so definitely fight him)
  • zachary taylor (he looks p mean idk if i’d fuck with that)
  • franklin pierce (he sounds like he designs shoes. if he doesn’t, fight him. if he does, get some shoes.)

  • chester arthur (he looks like he’d be good to rumble with do it)
  • benjamin harrison (dk who this dude is really but he looks like obi wan maybe don’t fuck with that???)

don’t fight:

  • james monroe (idk who cares about this clown he’s not worth your time)

  • ulysses s. grant (you can if you want to i’m just saying i’m not fucking with that at all)
  • william mckinley (he is going to have enough trouble ok)
  • theodore roosevelt (not only would he win he’d probably just kill you and barbecue you or something. only a fair fight if you’re ron swanson)
  • calvin coolidge (his name is just so cool, nah jk you can fight coolidge)
  • franklin d. roosevelt (i feel like he’d make you cry with words and then you’d lose by default)
  • harry truman (don’t fight him, just keep singing the first lines of ‘we didn’t start the fire’ and annoy him into submission)
  • john f. kennedy (nah there’s no reason for you to fight jfk. pls fight his father and so many of his relatives tho. like, that’s a whole other post)
  • gerald ford (he’ll just trip and hurt himself for you)
  • jimmy carter (he is a simple farrmer living a simple life who would probably cry and it’d get weird)
  • barack obama (this dude has enough going on and joe biden would swear revenge)
How Blackbird Paves a Way for More Black Artists

As the new film Blackbird opens in theaters today, there’s a valuable lesson to be learned. We don’t have to wait for big Hollywood studios or New York publishers to validate us. We can validate ourselves. We can tell our own stories, make our own films, publish our own books, create our own TV shows and theater. And, finally, we can take on topics that mainstream society thinks we’re not ready to address.
