This is the author of My Husband Betty and She’s Not the Man I Married, which I have discussed previously in two entries [1 and 2]. She’s a writer and activist for transgender rights, and you should go see her if interested. I am excited to hear her in person. I really hope her reading/presentation is good….

Here’s the link back to Gunner’s entry, also with advert for The Neighborhood (which I would go to if I could drag my lazy arse out to JP on a Sat. night) :

See, I’d so be willing to go (and get Mike to drive, after the semester was over..Of course, problem being that he’s no kind of queer; in fact I think he’s the only Kinsey 1 I’ve ever known) if I knew the music would be good, or at least in my ballpark, because ultimately that is my test of a good place to go dance. (of course, that’s because I’ve only ever gone to Man Ray, Haven (a goth night in Northampton a gay club called Metro), the Grotto, and Club Hell…yes, there was that club in Greece, but that was once and they just played bad hiphop).

I wanna wanna wanna go….

Gender Crash is known for slam-type writing by genderqueer authors. It does feature people doing quasi-musical things occasionally, but that’s not a focus. You should go to Helen Boyd’s presentation. Spontaneous Celebrations is mere steps from Stonybrook on the Orange Line.
