Yesterday, I attended Wordsmiths' Books' day-long poetry reading, and heard a lot of music, as well as poetry!
Aoki challenged my notions of what it is to be transgendered. She is a "pre-op" Trans, and very beautiful, with a lovely singing voice, and a wicked, edg-y sense of humor(and self!)
I'll provide a link to Aoki, later today.
Collin Kelley was once again the star of the show, as the grand finale' in the poetry line-up. Beautiful Decatur Square bustled with people of all types, and the fireworks display afterwards was pretty amazing--Decatur is wondrous, because it manages to be like a small town in all the ways that are positive(sense of community, uplifting environment, care for their neighborhoods), and it manages to be as diverse as a big-city, with all the cultural options of a big city, too!
More on PRIDE, later today!
Peace, kids.

Thanks for coming out and bringing Gigi, Coral and your mom. It was fun hanging out at dinner and the fireworks!
