Way back in 1988, gay marriage was considered so unbelievable and unattainable, that it was a fantasy story-line in the underground magazine that I used to publish, My Comrade.

Little did we realize that 23 years later(!), same-sex weddings would become legal in New York.

The images are fuzzy Xeroxes, but obviously still quite relevant!


The cover featured DJ Keoki and downtown sex symbol Aner Candelario…

The all-photo issue featured a visit to The Institute of Homosexual Inclination by a correspondent (Lisa Lederer) from the television news magazine Sixty Photos.

Director of the Institute was drag queen Hapi Phace.  Aner served as a guide.

Priest: Tommie Saeli.  Happy couple: Flloyd and Chris Corey.



Radical images indeed—now and then!

My latest theatrical endeavor, The Emperor’s New Codpiece (set a gay Medieval nightclub) has come to a close.

After a fantastic six-week run, I’m definitely ready to tackle other stuff in my life.  But boy, oh boy, am I going to miss my cast mates.

We all got along fabulously—on and off-stage.


BUENAVENTURA RODRIGUEZ as mighty go-go dancer Emperor. "Give me a coin, you can touch my groin."


PATRICK JOHNSON as ambitious peasant girl Hildegard. "Oh, how I dost long verily to perform."


MICHELLE OJEDA as comely maiden Guinevere. "My feet be swift and dance with skill and glee."


NICHOLAS GORHAM as monastery student and go-go dancer Camelot. "For religious life, tis much I sacrifice."


I can’t wait to see them all again!  A reunion party soon is a must!

Wow, at each performance of my summer play, The Emperor’s New Codpiece (final show is next week!), I’m reminded of how many wonderfully supportive people I have in my life.

It’s such a delight to see so many incredible friends from my past and present…  I truly am a very lucky gal.


With delightfully witty Brian Moylan, who writes for my favorite website, Gawker.


With Ken, Etienne, Catherine and Diego (who costarred in my online photo novella, "Bitches in the Sky").
With Raj Roy, who I've know since he was in charge of MIX, the experimental queer film festival. Now he's a curator at the Museum of Modern Art!


The always dapper illustrator Robert Richards with a fashionable friend.


Madcap artist Peter Cramer is always up for fun!
