You know what I mean.

REMINDER: Roller Derby. TOMORROW. DC Armory. DOORS AT 3PM!
The sun is shining and the Snowpocalypse of 2010 is but a distant memory. But DAMN it's still colder than a witch's uh...wait, this is a family fun event, uh...colder than a roller derby queen's heart when she goes in to massacre the opposing jammer.

Jammer? What?

No, that is not a nice Amish lady responsible for the tasty treats on your toast in the morning, goober. In roller derby, the jammer is the skater with the star on her helmet, and she scores points for her team by passing opposing players on the track.

So here's the deal:

There's a biggo renaissance of roller derby all over the damn country. Drew Barrymore and Ellen Page made a feature film, leagues are popping up all over like crazy, and you, YOU have a seriously badass (ranked 9th on the East Coast, dig?) league RIGHT HERE at the DC Armory.

Righteous women on wheels? Check.
Speeds that'll make you wish you'd sat farther back? Check.
Suicide seats? Double Check.
Family fun, facepainting for the kiddies *and* beer? Checkity check. Oh yes.

In TWO short days...Give Thanks for Roller Derby!
It's that time of the month again. No, I'm not talking about redoing the chore wheel at your group house or washing the car (every month? holy CRAP you keep a clean vehicle) or even calling up Aunt Marge to tell her you love her (and hope she keeps sending those "birthday" checks every 30 days).

Nope. While of course we're thankful for chores done and clean cars and most def Aunt Marge, I'm talking about GIVING THANKS FOR ROLLER DERBY!

That's right, once again it's time to put on your party shoes and haul butt down to the DC Armory THIS SATURDAY for some rockin' sockin' four wheeled action!


Amazingly athletic skaters!
Serious scintillating scoring!
Wild and wonderful halftime entertainment!
Beer for which I have no alliteration!


So come on down to the DC Armory in TWO SHORT DAYS which means THIS SATURDAY and give thanks for all these fantastic women skating around and knocking the everliving crap out of each other, ok? fancy dancy graphic right hereCollapse )

TONIGHT ONLY: Queer and Trans Artists of Color: MANGOS WITH CHILI
Late breaking news...

TONIGHT, for one night only, DC is delighted to receive MANGOS WITH CHILI. Do NOT miss this show!

Founded in 2006 by Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha and Ms Cherry Galette, Mangos with Chili began as an annual touring cabaret of queer and trans people of color performance artists, with the goal of creating a cultural institution that would build the careers and visibility of QTPOC artists.

For over 3 years, Mangos With Chili has performed to sold out houses across North America, wowing audiences in world class theaters, underground performance spaces, bars, and campus halls, with their high intensity, breathtaking performance, politics, and storytelling craft, reflecting the lives and stories of queer and trans people of color, while making art that speaks out in resistance to the daily struggles around silence, isolation, homophobia, and violence that QTPOC face.

9/16 - TONIGHT. Phase 1. A *VERY* SPECIAL BENEFIT. Coquetry for a Cause!
Instead of saucy commentary, I'm going to just lay it all out (for once).

Transgender Health Empowerment, T.H.E., is a very, VERY important service organization for our community. They serve the people in our community that need them most. We're talking the edge of the margins of the marginalized, folks. T.H.E. gives our people services they couldn't otherwise afford: basic things like health education, HIV testing, counseling, and even supportive housing.

Did I mention that T.H.E's been in a serious shitstorm lately? The city cut nearly all their funding, and two transwomen leaving T.H.E's building were attacked and knifed recently. One of them died, and the murderer? Still at large.

Transgender Health Empowerment is in a hole, and you're the shovel that can help dig them out.

Please consider attending a very special benefit TONIGHT at Phase 1. There's gonna be kickass performances and amazing raffle prizes like:

$50 to Pleasure Place
Two $25 gift certificates to Lambda Rising
$50 towards dinner for two at Jack's
An entire weekend pass to PhaseFest
Two $25 gift certificates to Sugar in Baltimore...

..and a whole lot more.

Please come and celebrate T.H.E.'s mission:

"The mission of T.H.E. Inc. is to enhance the quality of life of the diverse transgender populations we serve by advocating for and supporting a continuum of health and social services. In fulfilling our mission, we seek to unify and empower the transgender, lesbian, gay, and bisexual communities."

It's imporant. See you tonight.

Hey gays! Super gay (and lesbian, too!) comedy THIS SUNDAY in B'more, then Rehoboth!
Pssst!

This is *actual gay comedy* with actual gay (and they're REALLLY GAY) comedians, folks. You heard right. Actual gays! Doing THREE WHOLE shows, even!

Translation: this is NOT some sophomoric straight asshole being "ironic" or "edgy" by acting out every single stupid stereotype about gay men and expecting us all to say ha ha ha! I am so AMUSED that a heterosexual dude is playing up all ugly things gay so that he can a) make money and b) make money and c) oh yeah, MAKE MONEY.

Where was I? Oh yeah, money. These shows are bargains, people. Three fantastic queer comedians for awfully damn cheap.

First there's kickass cable TV and Logo Network regular ANT, then the aptly named (and ridiculously cute) Jason Dudey, and my own personal favorite badass dyke comedian Sabrina Matthews. I can personally vouch for her stupidly high stage show laugh-levels, and I'm not just saying that because her Comedy Central tv special was AWESOME (although it did crack me the hell up).

Flyers after the cut. Because I care, people.

Prop 8 UPDATE: SF Mayor Asked Court to Delay Prop 8 Ruling
Okay folks, this is the latest. I can't figure out if this makes me feel hopeful or hopeless.

EXCLUSIVE: SF Mayor Asked Court To Delay Prop 8

Confidential sources close to San Francisco City Hall told Towleroad's Corey Johnson that the California Supreme Court was prepared to release its opinion on Proposition 8 tomorrow, but decided to delay the ruling after a call from Mayor Gavin Newsom.

"Newsom reached out to the Supreme Court and asked them to hold off releasing their decision so it did not coincide with the White Night riots," said our source.

As mentioned earlier, a ruling Thursday would have fallen on the 30th anniversary of the San Francisco riots, which were set off when the court handed down the most lenient decision possible (voluntary manslaughter) against Dan White for the murders of supervisor Harvey Milk and Mayor George Moscone. The ensuing riots in San Francisco on May 21, 1979 caused hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage.


Source: http://www.towleroad.com/2009/05/exclusive-sf-mayor-gavin-newsom-asked-court-to-delay-prop-8-ruling.html


Rest assured, there WILL be a Day of Decision celebration or demonstration when the CA Supreme Court makes the announcement. Traditionally, the court releases decisions on Mondays and Thursdays, and the deadline is June 3. So the remaining possible dates are:

Tues May 26 (because of the holiday)
Thurs May 28
Mon June 1


I'll send out the notice as soon as I get it, but for now there is no set date for the Day of Decision. I'll keep you all posted!

Tomorrow is also the 30th anniversary of the White Night Riots in San Francisco which occurred after Dan White was given the most lenient sentence possible after murdering Harvey Milk and Mayor Moscone.

In addition, Friday would have been Harvey's 79th birthday.
