Hey folks! Sorry about the absence. This is my “Im tired as shit but I love you so much face” I’ve been taking a music theory class, and I just started rehearsals for a really intense (we have basically 26 rehearsals total before opening night, which is July 19th) production of The Pirates of Penzance, (which, for a Victorian-era operetta, is surprisingly, beautifully queer) and trying to hold my life together.
Although I am still fully committed to the ideals I’ve written about for creating trans* community and trans* space, I think I am going to have to lower my ambitions, at least for now.
The new plan (and feel free to comment on this, make suggestions, etc) is to simply organize a casual meet-up for DC-area trans* queer folk and cis queer- and trans* straight-identified allies (feel free to respond/object to this wording/organization. I would like this space to center trans* queer beings’ experiences) and try to spread it around tumblr.
For myself, I cannot do anything after 6pm mon-fri because of rehearsal. All other times are good, or negotiable. I think a good time frame would be doing this the week of the 24th, the 1st, or the 8th. We should meet in a public place, I’m thinking a coffee shop, for safety reasons.
If everyone gives suggestions of where (from MD, VA, DC, to as specific as a particular place in a particular town) and when would be best for you, I can hopefully come up with a place and time that works for everyone or most of everyone who responds, and then put up a general notice and try to spread it around.
So, my beautiful, lovely tumblr-queers, where and when would you like to meet?
