2nd Story Sunday

You can definitely tell that it's Pride Month. I am one busy fag.

Too many benefits, too many events and too little time. Monday night is Big Wigs Live! for Season of Concern...

...which, if you don't already have a ticket, you may be SOL, and this show is going to kick ass!...

...Tuesday evening, I'm co-hosting Windy City Media Group's 30 Under 30 ceremony...

...because what better way to depress yourself about your age and your lack of accomplishments than to surround yourself with more accomplished and younger homosexuals with smaller waistlines, cuter faces and hair...

...but tomorrow night is 2nd Story and it's going to be a blast.


2nd Story is an ongoing event produced by Serendipity Theatre Company where artists read their own personal stories to audience members in a bar setting. The thought is that their stories will lead those listening to turn to their friends and tell a story of their own. Ergo, 2nd story.

Serendipity Theatre generously donates the proceeds from their Pride installment of 2nd Story to Season of Concern, so I will be hosting the evening at the Andersonville gay bar @mosphere.


Me with a microphone at a gay bar. Be afraid. Be very afraid

Oh, and if me hosting is not enough to persuade you to attend tomorrow night, this is Byron. He will be reading one of the stories tomorrow night. A story about him stripping completely naked at a shower contest.

Yeah. I'm hoping he acts it out. All of it. All of it off.

It's good to be the host.

so, was the event affected by the andersonville power outage sunday night?

james - It absolutely was!!! During the last story, the power shot off and we all raced to the woman reading the story with our cellphones and lit her and her story that way. It actually added a lot of fun to the event!!!!

I'm sorry to have missed it--I was going to go after Joans rehearsal, but we ran longer than I thought (Jennifer wanted to try the new song in every single key! I'd hate to be with her when she tries on dresses...:-))
