Two Short Stories Published in a Week

This was a great week. Two of my short stories, both about gay bars, were published one right after the other. The first is called “The Vest” and appears in The Rain, Party, and Disaster Society. The second one is called “Vote” and was inspired by a gay bar I went to years ago where the staff was dressed as Nazi skinheads and wore fake Hitler mustaches (I quickly left). The story appears in Mad Swirl.

Just confirmed another FLIT event at Auntie’s Books in Spokane, WA. I’ll be there mashing up new poems and reading from the book. I’ve never been to Spokane and I’m very excited.

ITO – Thirty Years a Dresser

Queen Mob’s Teahouse just published a new essay of mine. When I was 15, I played Ito, the Asian houseboy, in the musical MAME. Years later, I dressed the actor who played Ito on Broadway with Angela Lansbury.
