Hey there. Long time, no write.
I've just returned home from tour. I've been either on the road or in the hospital (woo-hoo!) from September up to now. Touring and writing are activities that demand all of me, so I don't do both at the same time. So, I'm back. To everything, there is a season. This seems to be the season for writing.
While I was on the road this year, I either performed my solo show, "On Men, Women, and The Rest of Us," or I delivered some sort of keynote address. The show is a cut-n-paste piece—drawn from all my favorite words to read/perform at that moment.
The keynote address is something that evolves over the course of months, even years. I spoke the latest version of something I'm working on at the 2008 Western Regional Queer Conference, hosted by UCLA. So, I'm including the text here because this is as far as I've gotten with it. The conference theme was "Viva the Queervolution!" Some conference attendees asked me to make my keynote text available, so here it is.
